In Memory Of LCPL JOHN L. SCHAEFER Jr.
Lets bring it in Team Schaefer, this years race will be a special one. It is our 5th year anniversary running in memory of John and helping raise over five thousand dollars to date.
I hope to make this our best year yet, Veterans health is on the forefront of many Americans minds, with races like this one occurring around the United States proves there are great people working hard to better the lives of our Veterans. Hopefully the near future will bring swift action to remodel our Veterans health care in this country. I read in a study that 70% of Veterans who took their own lives were not members of the VA; this came as a surprise to me. I look forward to a time when mental health in this country is treated just as any other sickness in our body, and stripped of its entire stigma.
