Help End Veteran Suicide 


The average age of a Veteran that commits suicide is

                                       60 years old

"What we do for ourselves alone dies with us;

 what we have done for others and the world

remains and is immortal."  -General Albert Pike

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs recognizes the Patriot Project as a National Veterans Organization aimed at reducing the Nations Veteran suicide rate.

"This epidemic must be dealt with-the lives of those who protected our freedoms are on the line,
   Kenny Joseph DeAndrea the founder of the Patriot Project 22 is tackling this problem head on."
                                                                                                                                            Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick                 

"The time for an organization that raises awareness for Veteran suicide with an aggressive campaign that the Patriot Project has launched, is long overdue."
