Michael C. Wargo

—June 22, 1976 - May 20, 2013 —


This memorial is dedicated to Michael C. Wargo, and the brave men and women whom have fought for America overseas, and have paid the final price here at home due to PTSD or TBI. We cannot stand idly by as Veteran suicides sweep the country. This image standing before you was created from a photograph of Michael by Mission 22.
The current national statistics for Veterans suicide in America is 20 per day.
This memorial is meant to remind us of our loss, to amend the past, honor the present and prevent this from happening in the future.
We offer our sincere gratitude to Mission 22, TAPS, Valor Clinic Foundation, The American Legion, UVO, and VFW, for helping our Veterans and their families.
