SYNOPSIS: Mark is a recently retired Marine Captain with a wife and baby. He is obsessed with the amount of veterans committing suicide (averaging 22 per day). Along with his marine brother Betts and a crusty old Korean and Vietnam War vet “Uncle Harry”, Mark explores solutions to the high suicide rate among veterans. He even gets a meeting with his Congressional Representative to discuss possible legislation. As the day enfolds, Mark continues to count the vets committing suicide. By the close of the play, Mark suffers a personal tragedy himself. Will he be among today’s 22?
