If you were lucky enough to catch Dr. Erich Roush's suicide awareness class at Midwinter, then you know what a great presentation he will bring to the Convention Stage on Saturday. We are excited to learn more from him. Dr. Roush has been in the U.S. Army since 2007: five years active duty and seven years and counting in the Reserves. He has served as an armor, signal, and medical officer and now serves as a psychologist in a Combat Operational Stress Control unit.
