    On Sept. 11, President Barack Obama was joined by Secretary of Defense, Leon
    Panetta, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey
    during a ceremony at the Pentagon Memorial, to remember and honor those who
    perished that day, and those who joined the nations fighting force when the
    attacks thrust the nation into wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    September is National Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month and the
    Nation's top enlisted leader, Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Bryan Battaglia, Senior
    Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, wants service members
    to use this month as an opportunity to learn what to do when a fellow
    service member, family member, or veteran reaches out for help.
    If you need help, or know somebody who does,
    call the Military Crisis Line -- 1-800-273-8255.

    Pam Mitchell, Acting Director for the Federal Voting Assistance Program
    (FVAP), explains the new FVAP mobile website, which is aimed to help service
    members make their vote count.
