Sons of The American Legion
Detachment of Maryland
With the holiday seasons quickly approaching, I wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and a Great New Year.
We, as sons, should be thinking about what we are able to do to help our veterans at this time. In both VA Facilities and own communities. You can check with your Post Commander or Service Officer to see if they are aware of anyone that may require assistance. We should keep in mind that during the holiday season suicide rates increase, not only for the members of our community, but especially for veterans. The current rate of suicide for veterans now stands at seventeen per day.
Please remember to give your Veteran and Sons friends a Buddy Check simply to let them know you care.
