Program aims to help veterans affected by suicide

Eileen Hurn knows all too well how veterans are affected by suicide. Hurn’s husband, Brian, died by suicide in October 2013. He was a veteran, a Navy corpsman in the peacetime Navy of the late 1970s, working as a paramedic when he died. In a column she wrote for the Obelisk, the newsletter of the Loving Outreach of Survivors of Suicide, she said he was one of 22 veterans to die from suicide that day.
