I'd like to take a few minutes to talk about something really important. No ,I dont wanna talk about food, God, religion, your thoughts on the current president, or what your thoughts are on war. I want to talk about something that is often overlooked, not expressed with others, or just completely ignored.
Let talk about our military troops who are suffering from PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) or suicide.
Here are the FACTS:
22 veterans commit suicide per day-- 8030 people per year.
Over 100,000+ veterans have taken their own lives since the September 11th attack.
1 out of 5 suicides are a veteran.
A soldier is 200% more likely to take their own life after serving his or her country.
Let these facts sink in. You will realize that these numbers are absolutely stomach turning. We need to team up and do something!
El Capitan is constantly trying to do what ever we can to give our troops the proper respect they deserve! Four years ago we introduced "Military Monday" and have had great success. We would like to continue this event. Every Monday during the month May we will give 15% of our total revenue and donate it towards a meaningful and useful foundation.
We are open Mondays 11-9. Bring your friends, neighbors, or your favorite veteran! We want to see you! In trying to maximize our donation, we will not be accepting any coupons, church or school discounts, (or any others) during these next 4 Mondays.
If you have any question, just as me…
