not-one-more-lifeNebraska Gov. Dave Heineman and military leaders have kicked off a public awareness campaign to reduce suicides among veterans.

The “Not One More Life” campaign will focus on emotional issues that service members and veterans face.

The campaign is a joint effort of the Nebraska Department of Veterans Affairs and Nebraska Chapter 7 of the Disabled American Veterans.

The campaign includes radio announcements and more than 5,000 bumper stickers that promote a crisis line, 1-800-273-8255. The bumper stickers will be distributed to county veteran services officers in all 93 counties.

The crisis line is available to veterans, as well as their friends and family members.

    Problem is this is trying to treat a symptom,not the root cause… They need to find out why and what these young men and women are experiencing in war that is making them take their lives.This could be a symptom of what happens when we find ourselves in an unjust and immoral war for over a decade. Granted im no veteran, but there has to be a link to what their experiencing and are subjected to over there and suicide here.
