THE STORY:

My name is Monica A. de Leon, I am a retired USNR Vet.  I was deployed from 2011 to 2012 in the sandbox, but realistically I was deployed from my family until 2013, mentally, I am not sure I am all the way back yet. However, no onne wants to ever talk about that.  The weird thing is I did not suffer any traumatic moments myself I did not endure any combat, nor did I engage in enemy fire, but what I did endure was watching  my shipmates  battle depression because of situations they underwent. I myself have now been diagnosed with depession. It is a horrible disease, a silent killer for some. I know, I AM A SURVIVOR!!!!!! I want to make a difference in someone's life, but I cannot do it alone because of my injuries, my son and a group of his teammates have gotten together to show their support for me and all military members past and present. Their sense of pride is so impressive. Let's show our support to our active military and our veterans dealing with mental illness by raising as much as we can to help contribute to their ongoing treatement.
