Operation Zero Hosting Fundraiser For Wyoming Veterans

Operation Zero Vets
Wrench, Operation Zerovets

Veterans make up only 10 percent of the American population, but they account for nearly one in five of all suicides. In 2011, Wyoming had an average of 57 suicides per 100,000 veterans. So what can be done to help a veteran who is suffering months, sometimes decades, after seeing combat?

So what can be done to help a veteran who is suffering months, sometimes decades, after seeing combat?

Suicides have become the leading cause of death for the military. More than car crashes and combat. The numbers are not getting better. In the past 17, years the number of military veterans suicides have steadily climbed.

The event fundraiser is March 18 from noon to 7 p.m at the local AMVets Post 10 located at 3839 E. Lincolnway in Cheyenne. Contact 801-637-0368 for more information.

The event will host billiards matches, card games, and much more. Make sure to thank a vet while you are there.

Several local veterans have created a biker group, though you don’t need to be a biker to join or to care for their comrades who are suffering.

Find out more about what our veterans are going through, and how you can help, at their website, Operation Zero.

Find the group on FaceBook and join the conversation.
