A Force for Change Formed From Loss<p>As many as 17 veterans die by suicide each day, according to researchers with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans are 1.5 times more likely to die by suicide than Americans who never served in the military.</p><p>Beyond the stark statistics, it was Yocum's personal experience with veteran suicide that motivated him to act.</p><p>Yocum came up with the idea for a retreat for military families and veterans years after his grandfather, who suffered from depression and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, took his own life.</p><p>"My grandfather's suicide affected my family a lot," Yocum said.</p><p>Years later, when Yocum joined the Army, he saw friends experience those same issues his grandfather battled, and knew he had to do what he could to help reduce veteran suicide.</p><p>In order to raise awareness and funds, Yocum hiked across America. He began "Hike for Heroes" on April 17, 2010. He finished on Sept. 3, 2011, after hiking 7,800 miles across 37 states.</p><p>His effort received national attention for suicide awareness and raised $1.3 million for military families and helped create Active Heroes. Today, Active Heroes provides activities, peer-mentors and serves thousands of veterans across the country.</p><p>Active Heroes has helped save more than 800 veterans lives while also creating preventative measures through suicide prevention training. The retreat is open to military families free of charge.</p><p>"We provide healing activities for military heroes and their families," Yocum said. "The land is breathtaking. There's an archery course, hiking trails, and tons of hidden areas called healing areas that are only for military family members."</p><p>In addition, the retreat has a yoga meditation deck, an amphitheater, an outdoor picnic area and a host of walking bridges and pavilions.</p><p>"We've had veterans from as far away as Alaska, and several from Texas and California visit," Yocum said. "Many from the Northeast have visited this year."</p>
Driving Volunteerism<p>Matt O'Connor, a lease sales representative in Louisville, said associates were looking for a way to give back to the community and to veterans in particular, since so many associates are veterans or come from military families.</p><p>"They sacrificed their life, and all that goes into that, and time with their family, to keep us safe at home," O'Connor said. "We were looking for an opportunity to show our gratitude for what these folks give up on a day-to-day basis."</p><p>Active Heroes was a great fit. So far this year, associates from Penske's Louisville district have volunteered twice, performing work for the non-profit. The group of Penske associates made their first visit to the retreat back in the spring.</p>
