A local veteran came to speak to several of our classrooms before Thanksgiving break. His name is Kevin VanHoosier and he is a retired army warrant officer of 21 years. He has a bronze star as well as a Purple Heart. He is also the founder of Awareness 22.
Awareness 22 was started by him to bring awareness to everyone that 22 vets a day lose their battle with PTSD. He has support group meetings as well as events to try to reach as many vets as possible.
