EJF newsletter - Father's Day and the last statement of retired Army Sergeant Tom Ball

On this Father's Day we should remember the horror and the sacrifice of retired Army Sergeant Tom Ball made after battling with family court for ten years. See

We hear that now one soldier or Marine a day is committing suicide, and an average of 18 veterans a day kill themselves.

What we aren't told is how many of these men have had their children and families destroyed in today's grossly dysfunctional courts. When you take a man's children, his home, and everything he has lived and worked for you leave him very little reason to live.

And as Sgt. Ball notes in his last statement an estimated 72 million men, women, and children have ended up homeless at some point in their lives as the result of domestic violence laws. But one is never told of the damage these laws do.
Rest in peace Sgt. Ball, we'll man the ramparts against these enemies of freedom so long as we are able.
