Letter from Dan

Dear Neighbor,

My name is Dan Helmer, and I’m running for Congress here in Virginia’s 10th Congressional district. I’m running because I know that too many of us have lost faith in our politics – we believe our voices are no longer heard and our interests are no longer served – and I want to fix that.

The Uncounted War Dead

The Uncounted War Dead

Today, I will be thinking of friends lost, and the many more I never knew, who gave their lives in service to our country. Those who die in combat are recognized in the local and national monuments that we rededicate each Memorial Day. Yet the names of those lost on distant battlefields fail to capture the full measure of American lives lost. While we spend our time today honoring the memory of our war dead, approximately 20 more veterans will commit suicide.
