Treat of the Day: Special documentary to help veterans

By  | 

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - A former United States Navy Rescue Swimmer and a Texas A&M Former student are embarking on a unique adventure to help U.S. military veterans.

Capt. Taylor Grieger and First Mate Stephen o'Shea joined us on First News at Four talk about Skeleton Crew Sailing and the special documentary they are making that they say will save lives.

According to their Kickstarter page, 'Hell or High Seas' aims to expose the shortcomings of military out-processing procedures: shortcomings that result in over twenty veteran suicides a day. Through the transition stories of Taylor and several other veterans, we will not only highlight the problems veterans face upon returning home, but open a dialogue about how we can end the epidemic of veteran suicides by bringing civilians and veterans together, encouraging empathy, and building a community that demands change
