Suicide Prevention Stand Down

By - Posted on June 12, 2018

Suicide Prevention Stand Down 2018

Experiencing a traumatic event is common among service members who serve in hostile environments around the globe. Everyone reacts to traumatic experiences differently, and some service members or veterans may face emotional or psychological challenges such as feelings of anger, isolation, anxiety or guilt following the event or when they return home. These reactions, among others, can be common and expected responses to extraordinary events.

Omni MIlitary Loans is proud to be part of the Ordnance Battalion Suicide Prevention Stand Down for the second time. We are honored and humbled by the 932nd Ordnance Battalion’s efforts in helping these brave men and women combat the struggles they may be facing internally. Thank you for allowing us to provide food for this important event.


Suicide Prevention Stand Down 2017

Experiencing a traumatic event is common among service members who serve in hostile environments around the globe. Everyone reacts to traumatic experiences differently, and some service members or veterans may face emotional or psychological challenges such as feelings of anger, isolation, anxiety or guilt following the event or when they return home. These reactions, among others, can be common and expected responses to extraordinary events.

However, for some service members or veterans, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions, including depression or post-traumatic stress disorder. Warriors coping with these concerns may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide.

Which is why we felt it was important to join the Suicide Prevention Stand Down event in Fort Lee, VA hosted by the 32nd Ordnance Battalion. With over 400 service members in attendance we are able to better educate these service members on these serious issues and share with them resources available to them to help with tough times. Omni was honored to also provide food for the event.

This was about saving the lives of the men and women who put their lives on the line for us everyday.
