For many veterans, coming home from war isn’t easy. Post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and other issues contribute to one startling statistic. An estimated 22 veterans commit suicide each day.
“We’re humans,” said Josh Mulder, a former Marine. “We’re not machines. We’re not programmed to essentially not have feelings.”
Mulder knows the suicide numbers too well. He lost two friends after coming back from a tour in Afghanistan.
“It sucks,” he said. “It’s rough.”
Mulder’s loss prompted him to join a group of about sixty, many University of Iowa students and veterans, to march toward change, literally.
The group is working with the UI’s Veterans Association to raise awareness about veteran suicide rates by spending this week taking turns marching from TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis to Kinnick in Iowa City. That’s a whopping 280 mile journey. Participants left Sunday morning and are scheduled to arrive in Iowa City, Saturday.
