Call to action towards veteran suicide prevention and next of kin care September 06 2016
Our friends at Spartan Alliance ,a Sox Box Veteran Alliance partner, have requested a call to action from the community towards addressing yet one more sad case of veteran suicide. The Spartan Alliance, our small, all volunteer, non-profit organization, donated $4,000 towards LCpl Stephen Coning's immediate family in order to pay for burial costs. LCpl Coning's story and impact to his family is explained in greater detail within this story run by NPR: After a Vet's Suicide, Getting VA Benefits Can Compound A Families Grief
