The Simple Truth is an organization based in Lansing, working to raise awareness about veteran suicide rates.

My name is not important. What I have to say is.

This column distributed throughout America will enable us to finally acknowledge the simple truth, and then actually do something about it.

We will be starting with veterans.

Why? We wouldn’t even be here without my brothers and sisters.

To begin, we’ll be looking at a number of our veteran advocates from politicians to major businesses that have identified themselves as members of the front line in pursuit of rectifying a national disgrace. That disgrace is: How the veteran community has been treated after returning home from war, protecting us.

This column will be reporting to all of us (that’s you and me) on the actual sincerity and action of these advocates in pursuit of the justice we seek and the results of that report will be right here for all of us to see.

We need you to stay tuned, for it is with your support that we’ll be able to address ... The Simple Truth.
