A local group of Navy SEALs recently dove into the water to save their fellow soldiers.

This past week a group performed a grueling 13.1 mile swim to bring awareness to the 22 veteran suicides that take place every day, on average.

The swim raised enough funds to send Kevin Trainor, a Mooresville veteran, and 74 other local veterans to a PTSD recovery program. The five-day experience is called “Operation Restored Warrior,” a proven program that has helped many veterans overcome drug addiction, depression, and suicidal thoughts.
