In a rare moment of bipartisan unity, the Trump administration and congressional Democrats have found common ground in a new program that seeks to curb the high veteran suicide rate.

That program, called Be Connected, works to connect high-risk veterans with a myriad of resources to address the numerous issues with which they struggle. The program using community members to identify and reach out to struggling veterans.
