The Military Prayer Ministry Support Group held a Rosary Walk Sunday, Nov. 15, to raise awareness of veteran suicide. The suicide rate among veterans is triple that of other Americans. The group also honored Bob Von Almen at its Nov. 16 military Mass. Von Almen, a parishioner at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Alton, is a Vietnam veteran. Jan Copeland of Quilts of Valor recognized him for his service by presenting a quilt made especially for veterans to thank them for their service.
