Today on President Lincoln's birthday, February 12, 2015, President Obama signed into law Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention For American Veterans Act in the East Room of the White House.
Clay Hunt, a decorated Marine who served with distinction in Iraq and Afghanistan, struggled with depression and post-traumatic stress after coming home. Sadly, Clay’s life ended much too soon when he tragically committed suicide in 2011 at the young age of 28. It was a terrible loss and a painful reminder at how much more support our Soldiers and Veterans need upon returning from the battlefield.
