No Veteran Left Behind

Semper Fi Fund is proud to team up with the Department of Veterans Affairs to encourage Veterans, service members and their loved ones to seek out available mental health resources.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is partnering with Johnson & Johnson (J&J) on a new campaign, “No Veteran Left Behind,” to address Veteran suicide and mobilize the nation behind this issue. VA and J&J launched a public service announcement (PSA), narrated by Tom Hanks, urgently calling on each and every American to take notice and take action by reaching out to someone who may be in crisis. 

 
Why Are We Doing This?
Suicide is a public health issue facing our Veterans, Service members, their families, and our nation. Together, we can rally behind our nation’s Veterans and Service members to make a difference whether that person is going through a crisis or needs someone to talk to.
