Military Personnel and Mental Health

This Memorial Day falls on the 31st, bringing a close to Mental Health Awareness Month. Not only are we grateful for the contributions made by our military service persons, we are also aware of the sacrifices made by them and their loved ones. Some have paid the ultimate price and for many that means carrying grief as much as pride. Other carry the weight of their experiences, in ways that only other fellow service persons can understand.

NAMIPV would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to all of our service persons, past, present, and future. We are proud to have so many dedicated individuals from our community represented in the armed forces. For those whose service ends we hope that you find the comfort and support that you deserve in Pomona Valley. And for those who cannot return again, your memory will not be forgotten.

We encourage any and all to visit their local monuments and places of recognition not only during Memorial weekend but anytime. And for any service persons in need of mental health resources: strength comes in many forms including seeking help, you are not alone.
