I use the hashtag #IChooseLife when discussing veterans suicide, and mental health; in reference to this series of short videos from Mat Best, a former Army Ranger, Internet Personality and influencer.
I use it to highlight the highpoints, between injury exacerbations; or when I discuss specific pieces about my injuries.
I do it, it be open and honest with my peers from the military, and anyone else who needs a positive example.
Starting in 2019, I began to use the hashtag #BeThere as part of a VA Lead campaign to reduce veteran suicide. An effort that I have become fully invested in, and even filmed a Public Service Announcement for.
