The Story

The QUEEN MARINE Leadership Tour focuses on
National Suicide Prevention of Military and Veterans:

The approval of the Marine Corps veteran Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act was a tremendous victory for concerned military and veterans of suicide prevention groups.  This Congressional Act is in honor of CLAY HUNT a Marine Corps veteran that served in Iraq and Afghanistan and later took his own life in 2011. Legislation designed to help combat suicide by US military veterans passed in the US Senate 99-0 in 2015.

The Queen Marine Leadership Tour focuses on National Suicide Prevention of Military and Veterans.  The Tour will visit 10-15 Cities every year to bring awareness of suicide awareness and prevention in high schools, teenage events and family conferences & leadership summits.
