22 Boots

09/12/16 sk/mbd
In recognition of National Suicide Prevention Month, the Fort Hays State University Military Friendly Committee and the FHSU chapter of Technology Education and Engineering Collegiate Association created the 22 Boots Display. A 2010 study done by the Department of Veterans Affairs stated that every day 22 of our nation's veterans take their own lives. Each pair of boots displayed represents a veteran who commits suicide. The purpose of this display is to raise awareness about a serious issue that faces our nation's military and veteran communities. The display is located in the Forsyth Library lobby and will be displayed through the month of September.
