VISIBLE HONOR FOR INVISIBLE WOUNDS
Wednesday June 27, 2012 10:00 AM
A Presentation by Honor for ALL to commemorate and promote
National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day
200 New Jersey Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20001
SR 455, introduced by Senator Kent Conrad calls for this June 27 to be set aside as the third annual National Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day
Honor for ALL, a 501(c)3 organization, is dedicated to establishing visible recognition of the invisible wounds of post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, depression, and survivor's guilt. Our mission is to conquer the stigma, preserve the dignity of families, and most importantly, stop the tragic loss from suicide of veterans and family members suffering these wounds.
This event is open to the public and will be addressed by representatives of the Armed Services Chiefs, members of the Federal Executive and Legislative Branches, distinguished individuals from the national healthcare sector and last, but certainly not least, affected service members and veterans. Ceremonies will begin promptly at 10:00 AM in Upper Senate Park directly adjacent to the Russell Senate Office Building.
Gen (Ret) Peter Chiarelli will be the keynote speaker. An open mike will be offered at the end of the ceremonies for those in attendance to speak if they wish.
On this day, we shall pay special tribute to those hallowed souls from all wars who have fallen to suicide as the ultimate consequence of their wounds.
Our goal is national awareness of the true nature of PTSD, and all invisible wounds.
Our goal is to leave no one behind, on the field of battle or among the gathering of honored veterans.
Our goal is to conquer stigma, instill dignity and preserve lives.
Honor for ALL is looking for volunteers to act as Marshals at the event. If you are interested please contact Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org
