“22 Day Pushup Challenge – Veteran’s Suicide Prevention”
This is Day 105 of my 22-day push-up challenge. I was nominated to do 22 push-ups a day for 22 days. This is to raise awareness for our military veterans. We must continue to address the stigma surrounding mental health and proactively remove any guilt, shame, or resistance which stands in the way to seeking care.
Today I nominate: ANYONE that is following and would like to help promote awareness. I know this is working and the more friends that want to join the better, we are now a 30 person team, the more the better, simply leave a comment below and let us know. I feel as a Marine it has always been important to look out for one another and I’m not going to quit.
The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days start the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push-ups. Do them in any way you can. Effort is what counts…not form.
* Every day you must nominate a different person.
* And finally, have fun with this. This is a simple and interactive way to get the word out about a matter that we must continue to shed light on (I understand if some can’t post videos due to undisclosed personal reasons, but I hope you’ll join us in spirit).

I am a Gold Star daughter. My Dad’s name can be found on panel 31E – Line 32….Too few realize what the words “some gave all” means.
They might consider a soldier’s life lost but not the impact for years to come on the family.”
