Iowa Governor Branstad Proclaims Memorial Day
in Iowa “Patriot Outreach Day”
On Monday, May 30th at Camp Dodge in the Iowa Gold Star Military Museum, Gov. Terry Branstad in view of thousands of attendees signed an executive proclamation declaring Memorial Day to be “Patriot Outreach Day.”
The Iowa Senate and House “unanimously” passed separate resolutions in their own support of Patriot Outreach and Gov. Branstad now adds his voice and executive authority in recognizing Patriot Outreach’s outstanding contributions to help our Armed Forces, First Responders and their Families find “Victory over Stress.”
Patriot Outreach is a charitable organization (501) (c) (3) that supports Veterans, Military, First Responders and their Families to find help and healing through their revolutionary CD “Coping Strategies.” Patriot Outreach has already provided over 65,000 copies of the Coping Strategies CD and 34,000 downloads at their website PatriotOutreach.org.
Patriot Outreach Spokesman Lee D. Booton had this to say about the uniqueness of the organization’s approach, “Our group provides simple, effective, non-intrusive support, designed to bridge the gap between those who seek help and the silent majority who avoid the stigma of seeking assistance.”
PatriotOutreach.org has a plethora of resources, links and downloads designed to bring peace to thousands of those who are suffering from anger, stress and even Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, all of which are related to trauma associated with deployment and life’s stressors.
WHO 1040’s own “Van and Bonnie” broadcasted live from the event for the Memorial Day Remembrance Program at the Gold Star Museum. Gov. Branstad read the proclamation on air while Patriot Outreach founder and President Col. Antonio Monaco,AUS, Midwest Regional Director Lee Booton, and Rep. Dan Kelley, a key supporter and signer of the House Patriot Outreach Resolution, looked on. Karen Schechinger of Army OneSource Iowa and Patriot Outreach Communications Director, Tori Dreyer, took pictures of the event and cheered on the governor as he signed the proclamation.
The event featured a breakfast, gun salutes, the playing of “Taps” and soldiers dressed in various period military uniforms that walked among the museum displays. Weather was excellent and spirits were high as Iowa became a state pioneer in supporting Patriot Outreach and its goal of achieving “Victory Over Stress.”

Combating suicide and getting help to our Warriors is critical. Please note the attached letter from Amber, an injured soldier. How many tell signs of suicide are present? (She felt unloved, unappreciated, no hope, no purpose, a burden, and the pain). The Patriot Outreach’s “Coping Strategies” CD made the difference. Sadly, not only are active duty military suicide are up, the Department of Veteran Affairs, said an average of 18 veterans commit suicide EVERY DAY.
