Theo Collins: Shedding Light On Veteran Suicide With Documentary Film
Theo Collins served six years with the Marine Corps, including a tour in Afghanistan.
Toward the end of his career he worked with Wounded Warriors, assisting injured veterans to events. After his time of service, Collins joined a fellow marine he met in Afghanistan on "Project 22," a documentary looking at veteran suicide.
The Department of Veterans Affairs says 22 military veterans commit suicide a day.
“I think every veteran of this generation has some experience and some relation to someone who is in that situation, who is on the cusp of taking their own life or who has,” he said.
Collins is finishing his last year of law school as he helps finish the documentary.
Collins was interviewed by CLCV team member and former U.S. Army E-5 Sergeant James Yauger. Read more about Veterans' Stories: Project 412 and its participating team members.
