Every day, 22 veterans in America commit suicide.
This astonishing number is what SIMED Lady Lake Division Manager and US Army Retired CPL/Combat Medic Jeremy Caldwell (seen right during his Iraqi deployment and most recently with his daughter at an Orlando City soccer game) is hoping to change. “The number 22 is a number we want everyone to remember. We want to bring awareness to the thousands of current and former servicemen and women who have stories similar to mine.”
During a tour of duty in 2006, Jeremy says that things "got too dark" and he attempted to take his own life. Fortunately he was unsuccessful. Jeremy is now using his life lesson to help others who may be struggling. He shares his travels down the road to recovery to help aide other veterans by advocating for them and letting them know they don’t have to face it alone.
Jeremy’s story will be televised nationally as part of the NFL Today on CBS Pregame Show before the Cowboys vs. Panthers game on Thanksgiving Day. To hear more about Jeremy and for more information, check your local listings. Be sure to tune in to learn how you can help support veterans in your community.
If you are or know a veteran who needs help, please call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1 or send a text message to 838255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

- Athletes with suspected concussion be taken out of the game immediately and not return until assessed by a licensed health care professional trained in diagnosing and managing concussion
- Athletes with concussion should return to play gradually and only after all symptoms are resolved.
- Athletes of high school age and younger with a concussion should be managed more conservatively than others before returned to play, as evidence shows they take longer to recover than college age athletes.
- Although the guideline indicates that an athlete should immediately be removed from play following a concussion, there is insufficient evidence for absolute rest after concussion. Activities that do not worsen symptoms and do not pose a risk of repeat concussion may be part of concussion management.

Current leading causes of death in the America include:
In analyzing the differences and causes of death in 1900 vs. today is readily apparent that the issues in 1900 greatly involved the infectious diseases. With the advances in medical technology, treatments and common medications the top three causes of death in 1900 have been greatly minimized in developed countries. Unfortunately, there are still significant childhood deaths in undeveloped countries from something as simple and as preventable as diarrhea.
