Every day, 22 veterans take their own life, and an upcoming event is bringing awareness to this issue of vets losing their battle with PTSD and mental illness.

On October 3, the WR22 Veteran Suicide Awareness Walk will take place at Western Reserve High School in Berlin Center.

At the walk, food vendors will be available, and community service organizations will be on hand to share information.

There will also be speakers, including Mahoning County Commissioner Carol Rimedio-Righetti and Congressman Bill Johnson.

Registration for this event is free and open to the public.

Those attending are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to a local Veterans Home.

Gates open at 6 p.m., and the walk is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
