Fort Wainwright is a United States Army installation in Fairbanks, Alaska.
"Fort Wainwright, in Alaska's frigid interior, is the epicenter of the Army's suicide crisis. USA TODAY spent several days there in February and had access to soldiers of all ranks who spoke openly about delays in receiving counseling. They also talked about the challenges of living in Arctic conditions of extreme cold and lack of daylight, physical isolation and problems with finances and relationships." - READ MORE ON USATODAY.COM
The Strong Blue Line would like to get 7200 copies of "Suicide is Not an Option" to the soldiers at Fort Wainwright. Please help the soldiers with your donation today.
Thanks so much for your support!
We’ve wrapped up our Fort Wainwright Ministry Project and have shipped copies of Suicide is Not an Option, Hope in Man’s Search for Meaning to the arctic military post.
Recently, I contacted Chaplain (MAJ) Tony Cech who is stationed at Ft. Wainwright. He was extremely grateful for the books and agreed to see the books are distributed to the chaplains. The chaplains will ensure the books are made available to the soldiers. Chaplain Cech also requested continued prayer for the soldiers, and the chaplains who are ministering to them. We chatted for several minutes, and he confirmed that northern Alaska is a tough area to minister where there seems to be a spiritual darkness that compounds the depression of the long, cold, and dark winters. Pray the books will be a blessing and help prevent suicide.
