Students write letters to soldiers overseas telling them how much they appreciate what they do.

One veteran who now attends Enterprise State says the letters mean more than the students will ever know.

Army vet, Jettadia Bush said, "It means a lot when we're over there, you know? Just to get that little piece of hometown feel, even if it's not our town. To see our sacrifices and our jobs over there is doing it for the guys over here."

Enterprise State has also placed 660 American flags on the lawn of their campus to spread awareness for the 660 veterans who take their own lives each month through suicide.
