New York, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2011
In a Memorial Day blog, the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms is urging supporters to take action against the policy prohibiting condolence letters being sent to the families of soldiers lost to suicide. Sadly, in 2009 and 2010 more soldiers died by suicide than were killed in combat. TWLOHA is asking supporters to use their voices and urge President Obama to reverse the policy by contacting the White House directly.
