Adjutant Salak recently met with Dave Tuttle and Nicole Wilson of the Suicide Prevention office in the VA Nebraska-Western Iowa hospital. The three discussed the saddening suicide statistics that continue to plague our military men and women. To address this issue the Nebraska American Legion will advertise the Veterans Crisis Hotline on our homepage. Information will also be provided in the near future via email and monthly newsletter flyers. Individual Posts and Districts are encouraged to take advantage of the free training sessions provided by the Suicide Prevention office.
