It’s estimated that 21 military veterans die by suicide every day. Tegan Rowley was nearly one of them. But now the Air Force veteran has devoted her life to counseling and helping other veterans feeling that same despair. And that makes her one of our FOX31 Serving Those Who Serve Heroes of the Month.
Rowley was active-duty and serving her country in the Air Force when she suffered a career-ending back injury.
More than that, she donates her time to other nonprofits. In fact, later this month, she’s volunteering her services for the Foundation 1023 Boots and Badges Gala. The organization provides funding for mental wellness services for first responders in Colorado and Texas.
