OPERATION T.A.L.K. (Tell, Ask, Listen, Keep Safe)
Operation T.A.L.K. came to be after the loss of James Walsh, son of Tim and Maureen Walsh. Jimmy was 22 years old when he lost the battle within himself. Military and Vets suffer in so many ways not only do they fight in other countries to ensure we can continue to enjoy our freedoms at home, but some come home still fighting a war we cannot see. Depression and PTSD are as real as the uniform they wear for this great country. It is time for us to help our heroes know we are here for them.
