Preventing Suicide One Mile At A Time

James Greer, a 52 year old combat veteran of Desert Storm will ride a dual sport motorcycle from Leonardville KS to the Arctic Circle and back in 22 days. He will ride the most isolated and dangerous highway in north america "The Dalton Highway" to raise awareness of veterans suicide. From July 1, 2022 to July 22, 2022. Almost 8 thousand miles in 22 days.

Everyday in America we lose over 20 veterans to suicide. Our Mission is to end the stigma surrounding post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury and get our veterans the treatment options they want and deserve.

Mission 22 supports the veteran community with three main programs; veteran treatment programs, memorials and community social impact. Mission 22 provides treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues. Mission 22 serves combat veterans, those injured in training who therefore could not deploy and victims of MST. Mission 22 also has an Ambassador volunteer program for people to get involved as well. Ambassadors educate the public on veteran issues, help get veterans into Mission 22 treatment programs and create resources in their communities. Through these three programs, it enables a push for the betterment of our community and support when veterans need it the most, right now.
