Silent Watch began in 2007 at Bagram AB in Afghanistan. Before Veterans Day, the Base Commander asked for volunteers to stand two-man watch at the main flagpole in honor of our Veteran Brothers. There was no shortage of volunteers. Each team stood a 30-minutes "Watch" and was then relieved by the next team. This went on for 24 hours. After getting home in 2008, two of our unit members took their own life. This prompted the beginning of Silent Watch, Veteran Suicide Awareness, to bring public awareness to the escalating number of Veteran suicides. This was a taboo topic back then, but with September being recognized as National Suicide Prevention Month, this is now in the spotlight. So now we stand in a Silent Watch every September for our Brothers.
