Less than 1% of this country are veterans. But, veterans are committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day. For a significant number of them, the post death analysis has been: they’re in debt, up to their ears.
Yes, there are assumptions that all veterans get their healthcare free for life once they get out of their service commitment, but this is not the case.
The first step in progress is the release from debt - release from economic problems. If you do not have that, without being a medical person, I think recovery is almost impossible.
That’s what I just want to open your eyes to, that veterans medical debt is out there. It’s big. It tears up families. It tears up veterans. It tears up their credit rating. Everything goes into the gutter. I’ve seen. I’ve seen the look on the faces, and it’s not a pretty site.
