Field of the Forgotten Fallen
The Tioga County Veterans’ Service Agency and Tioga County will recognize September as “Suicide Prevention Awareness Month”.
To that end we will be unveiling an exhibit beginning September 4th and continuing through the entire month to bring attention to the national epidemic that is veteran suicide!
22 veterans a day die by suicide, that’s 154 per week, 660 per month and 8,000 per year! Join us at the unveiling of our exhibit, “Field of the Forgotten Fallen”, Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 9:00am on the lawn of the County Building at 56 Main Street in Owego, NY. This exhibit is designed to raise awareness about the issue of veteran suicide, cause us to pause and reflect on what we can do to help our veterans and prevent these unfortunate deaths and as a community what we need to do to stop veteran suicide.
