Every day, an average of 22 veterans commit suicide. That’s where the organization Mission 22 gets its name. Along with providing help and resources for veterans and their families, Mission 22 collected some stark, stunning photos of homes where veterans killed themselves. They were taken by a photojournalist who covered several wars with this camera, then realized after he got back that, for too many veterans, the wars continue long after they come home. This Memorial Day, let’s not forget about the veterans who endured tough field battles, but could not endure the battles within themselves.
