Commander Houghton was approached as the 1st District Commander by the Department of Washington to aid the Veterans Affair hospital staff of Seattle as they pushed to get enough veterans to participate in the pilot study that looked at effective measures to reduce suicidal behaviors via letters written by other veterans. Post members flooded in to help, nearly contributing the entirety of the needed veteran volunteers for the study to be successful. The post was more than happy to bring in a diverse group of members of various ages, genders, ethnicities, and service eras which allowed the researchers to be able to help that many more veterans. Due to the nature of any research study, the only photo we are able to provide is the awesome flyer!
