War at Home Memorial
Michael C. Wargo
—June 22, 1976 - May 20, 2013 —
The current national statistics for Veterans suicide in America is 20 per day.
This memorial is meant to remind us of our loss, to amend the past, honor the present and prevent this from happening in the future.
We offer our sincere gratitude to Mission 22, TAPS, Valor Clinic Foundation, The American Legion, UVO, and VFW, for helping our Veterans and their families.
