Leave No One Behind
This week, President Obama signed the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act into law as a step forward in preventing suicide and overcoming mental health challenges for America’s veterans, their families and caregivers.
Named in honor of late Iraq and Afghanistan War veteran Marine Corporal Clay Hunt, who committed suicide in 2011 after unsuccessful efforts to get help, the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act expands access and coordinates our efforts to provide the best mental health care to our returning heroes. Twenty-two veterans take their lives every day, leaving thousands of loved ones whose lives will never be the same. As we celebrate the signing of this law, we must continue our support for the veterans struggling with the seen and unseen scars of war and renew our commitment to serving our veterans as well as they have served us.
Basic Fire Facts and Fire Safety Tips
As our thought and prayers remain with those affected by the recent fires in San Francisco, we are once again reminded of the strength in coming together as a community to offer food, shelter, and comfort to our neighbors in their time of need. After the fires, many of our residents faced displacement as their homes and belongings were destroyed. Yet our community once again came together to ensure that these individuals received timely assistance, and I thank the firefighters, first responders, and organizations for their tireless efforts.
