Brooklyn GOP Radio continues our commitment to bringing awareness to issues and challenges concerned our veterans. 

1,892:  That's the number of veterans and servicemen who have committed suicide in the past year. We are failing the best and brightest of our nation, some of whom have been in combat for over a decade in defense of our nationoverseas. 

Some more sobering numbers:  A VA study from last year found that an average of 22 veterans commit suicide daily. DAILY. According to a member survey conducted by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, more than 47% of respondents said they knew a veteran who had attempted suicide after serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.

On tonight's show, we'll talk some hard truths with Concerned Veterans for America's Jessie Jane Duff, who served 20 years on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired a Gunnery Sergeant. Along with multiple overseas deployments and combat related exercises, "Gunny" provided logistical support during Desert Storm and the Iraq / Afghanistan wars.  Jessie has been a guest on various shows on Fox News, MSNBC and CNN. 

Join us for this important show. 

(There's a little bit of a distortion loop in the interview - but stick with it!  We clear it up midway through)
