Today, at the halfway point of my 22 days, 22 pushups a day challenge to raise awareness for Veteran’s suicide, I visited Dublin’s Mape Memorial Park, named after United States Navy Commander John “Jack” Clement Mape, a 40-year old father of seven, who was Dublin’s first casualty in the Vietnam War. I was joined on Day 11 by Dublin residents Kevin Dielissen and Stephen Wright, whose son Dylan, is a member of the Army Reserves following 8 years of active duty service in the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. All Veterans deserve our support as they return home. On average 22 Veterans die by suicide each day. By doing pushups, I hope to bring awareness to the issue and help to those who struggle. If you are a Veteran and you need support, please call 1-800-273-8255, and press 1. Help is available, you are not alone. Thank you to those who serve or have served, and the families and friends who support them.
