Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Juiseppe (Joe) Copeland.

Joe served in the Navy as a Seabee. He spent the majority of his enlistment in Kuwait and Iraq.

He is now an advocate for addressing and healing PTSD. Last year, Joe set out from Virginia to walk across the country to California to raise awareness and support for Veteran suicide.

Thank you for your service, Joe!
