DES MOINES, Iowa -- Twenty veterans nationwide commit suicide every day, according to a 2016 Department of Veterans Affairs study. This startling statistic impacts a number of U.S. families, and on Saturday a Des Moines organization will march through downtown in an effort to raise awareness about the issue.
Zach Brichetto is an organizer of the second annual DM Ruck for the 23 March, and said he started the event because it is a personal issue that also affects many people.
Saturday, May 27th
Pioneer Park, 1602 East Pioneer Road
