Cover Me Veterans
In July of 2016, the Department of Veterans Affairs released a study revealing that roughly 20 veterans a day commit suicide across the nation. Cover Me Veterans™ provides service-members with the opportunity to have a relevant and meaningful image placed on their firearm free of charge. The idea is that an individual might THINK TWICE about ending his or her life if prompted to look at an image of the thing or things in his or her life that matter most to them (their spouse, children, parents, pet, battle buddies, or a religious icon) when experiencing chronic suicidal thoughts. Looking at one of these images is likely an effective way to intervene at this crucial and incredibly dangerous time.
At Shrapnel, we are proud to support our country’s servicemen and women. Cover Me Veterans is meeting a difficult task head on with passion and creativity. If you would like to learn more about their work and their mission, please visit them online!
