Project 22, Thursday, November 10 at 6:00 pm

In 2014, combat-wounded veterans Daniel Egbert and Doc King set out on a 6,500-mile, cross-country motorcycle mission to raise awareness of the suicide rate among their peers.

The crowdfunded, 22-day ride from San Francisco to New York symbolized the 22 U.S. military veterans estimated to take their own lives every day. Along the way, they spoke with researchers, mental health clinicians, educators, combat stress experts and many veterans who had contemplated suicide.

A screening of the resulting documentary, Project 22, is scheduled 6 p.m. Thursday, November 10, in Perdue Hall’s Bennett Family Auditorium.

Medicinal Missions, the film’s producer, has continued the Project 22 awareness campaign. The movie was an official selection for the 2015 G.I. Film Festival in Washington, D.C. and Fairfax, VA.

The screening is hosted by the Jesse Klump Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program, SU Student Military Veterans Association and Veteran Services in SU’s Registrar’s Office. Admission is free and the public is invited.

So many veterans feel confused about benefits and services they’ve earned. There is so much to know…and so many changes from one year to the next. That is why the nonprofit DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and the Harley-Davidson Foundation have teamed up to offer help. The DAV Mobile Service Office will be at the Harley-Davidson of Baltimore, 8845 Pulaski Highway, Baltimore, Maryland, from 9:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., on Saturday, July 20, 2013, to personally provide the best counseling and claim filing assistance available. This event is part of the nationwide Harley’s Heroes tour and is free to all veterans and members of their families.
For further information concerning this event, please contact NSO Philip Surace at (410) 230-4440.
