Aurora, Mo. —
Members of the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW in Monett are focusing on military suicides during the month of September.

“This is the first year for the LAVFW to have a Military Suicide Awareness Month, and it is part of the Americanism program,” said Mary Thurman, president of the group.

“Each member of the LAVFW is being asked to wear a teardrop sticker every day in September, yet when I told my husband about this, he asked what wearing a sticker would do to help with the problem, and I had no answer for him,” said Thurman.
