Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Stanley “Stan” McClure. Stan served from 1965 to 1967 during the Vietnam War.

Stan served with the 4th Infantry Division at Camp Enari near Pleiku, Vietnam. He is now a Post Service Officer and a member of the Pat Hannon VFW Post 4666 in Littleton, Colorado. Stan has dedicated much of his time to creating awareness for Veteran suicide and has pedaled 30,000 miles in the past 6 years for this cause. By bringing attention to this issue, Stan hopes to bring more support and resources to Veterans in need.

Thank you for your service, Stan!
