soldiers on different type of battlefield

This past Memorial Day you likely took a moment to honor those brave soldiers that died in the battlefield fighting for our freedom, which is exactly what the holiday is about. Sadly though, many of us don't know about the 22 soldiers a day die on a different type of battlefield: their home, due to suicide. To raise awareness for this unnecessarily high statistic, nonprofit Mission 22 and Crispin Porter + Bogusky launched this incredibly heartbreaking campaign showcasing the homes where some of these soldiers committed suicide. But they don't want you to stop at just knowing about it, you can help too. If you know a soldier struggling with the experiences of their service, the campaign website features a list of vetted organizations where they can get help. Powerful work, tastefully done.
