Garrett was out riding with his buddies on a motorcycle ride for Veterans. They had arranged a North Texas Police Motorcade for Project 22 to ensure compliance. However, one man in his Jeep decided to attempt to fly past our convoy against instructions and to wait a few moments. Instead, he decided to mount the curb and try and pass everyone at high speed, endangering participants. He defied a request to wait, and so police caught up with him and cited him.
Two combat-wounded veterans set out to end a little-known epidemic in America beginning in the fall of 2013. Their 6,500-mile cross-country mission was to raise awareness of the high rate of suicide amongst Veterans and show their brothers and sisters-at-arms that there is hope for them.
During their journey, they interviewed researchers, healthcare providers, and Veterans by asking hard-hitting questions and opening up about their own struggles, and painfully spurred on by recent estimations that 22 veterans are taking their own lives every single day.
Many of those they encountered had either contemplated or attempted suicide and were able to share the life-saving alternative sources of hope that they had found.
