• To raise awareness to the tragedy of loss of veteran life by suicide
• To emphasize the need for our communities to better support those who have served.

During the ceremony guests will hang 22 blank dog tags to represent the average of 22 veterans who lose their life to suicide during every 24-hour period.

Witness Tree is an extension of a larger Veterans’ support program called Warrior’s Journey Home: Listen – Speak – Heal.
