    NORFOLK, Va. (Sept. 13, 2019) – Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Paul Kopel and Peg Smith, Branch Health Clinic (BHC) Naval Station Norfolk’s Health Promotions Clinic staff members, set up a display of 79 pairs of boots to remember the 79 Sailors who were lost to suicide in 2018, and to raise awareness for suicide prevention. “These are no longer just boots or material objects; the boots represent people,” Smith said. “These boots are our peers, someone’s mother, father, child and/or coworker. This material object has its own life. It’s not just 79 pairs of boots, it is 79 immediate families who are affected by loss.” “Have you seen the boots?” is an initiative to identify and remember Sailors who are lost to suicide, and to try to figure out what it is that we, as a community, are missing when it comes to this tragedy.
