VA Taking Life-Saving Campaign to Streets

October 19, 2010 - WASHINGTON – This week, nearly 1,200 life-saving advertisements will go up on city buses, bus shelters, rail and subway stations across the Nation displaying a message of hope for those who have served their country and may be facing an emotional crisis. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is advertising its Suicide Prevention Hotline through Jan. 9, 2011.

“I know of one Veteran who saw these signs on a bus shelter, called the hotline, and came to VA for help that same day,” said VA Secretary Eric K. Shinseki. “That Veteran had been walking out to the desert to take his own life. There are thousands of other Veterans like him who are still with us today as a direct result of the hotline. It’s important that we get the word out to everyone who put their lives on the line in defense of this Nation.” {read rest}
