Six weeks after returning stateside from his Afghanistan mission - Sergeant Derr succumbed to suicide. 

Colton’s father, Jerry Derr states, “Deployments find mission, duty and camaraderie.  Coming home does not always mean peace, but often reveals confusion, turmoil, anger, depression and isolation. To end the pain - an estimated 22+ veterans and one active duty soldier succumb to suicide every day.”  

Come join us for the evening and honor our heroes. Help us raise awareness about the issues facing our warriors: PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), veteran suicide, homelessness, multiple deployments and the effect they have on our veterans and their families.
