Our brother, Micah, was a Marine and honorably discharged after faithful service. Eight years ago this month, he took his life after struggling with depression. This November his brothers are shaving their beards and participating in Movember in his honor, to bring attention to male suicide, particularly among veterans and to raise money in Micah's honor for #22KILL.
#22KILL is a charity which focuses on raising awareness of veteran suicide and serving warriors as they transition to civilian life. 100% of donations go directly towards programs and services for veterans and their families that focus on empowerment and mental health, provided through various partner organizations.
If you knew Micah or know a warrior in your life, thank them for their service and think about their future after their service. If you knew Micah or another man who may be struggling with depression and suicide please say something. And please consider donating to #22KILL in honor of my brother, Micah.
