OKLAHOMA CITY - As part of its continued commitment to the community, Fox 25 held a Town Hall meeting to discuss issues affecting our veterans returning from service.  The latest statistics show that every day 22 veterans commit suicide, and countless more suffer from PTSD.

Fox 25 assembled a panel to take part in a discussion moderated by Mark Hyman.

It happened at Oklahoma Christian University’s in Judd Theater in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Members of the panel included:

  • Juanita Celie, Oklahoma VA Hospital Suicide Prevention Coordinator
  • Dr. Steven Scruggs, a Psychologist with the Oklahoma VA Hospital
  • Howard & Jean Somers, whose veteran son Daniel committed suicide
  • Gen. James Mukoyama, President & Exec. Dir. Of Military Outreach USA

If you missed it, you can catch it again Saturday at 4 p.m. or Sunday at 5 p.m. on the CW.
