If you visit the 173rd Fighter Wing in September 22 pairs of boots donated by wing Airmen hold messages designed to remind you it’s Suicide Prevention Month each bearing an important message like Connect to Protect: Support is Within Reach, this year’s theme, Sept. 7, 2021. The messages serve to remind both those struggling with thoughts of harming themselves and those and those around them that connectedness is one of the strongest deterrents of suicide.
