Tonight's guest is Patrick Little, founder of 22 Sierra Coffee Co. Patrick served in the United States Air Force between 2011 and 2017, separating as a Cyber Transport Systems Supervisor. After basic training and tech school, he spent his entire enlistment at Barksdale AFB, LA. Patrick was deployed to Bagram AF, Afghanistan, from October 2015 to April 2016. He obtained his undergrad from Ashford University in 2014 and is an MBA Candidate at Boise State University, scheduled to graduate in the Spring of 2021. His passion to prevent suicide stems from the loss of two Air Force friends and co-workers along with several childhood friends. 22 Sierra Coffee Co. was founded by USAF veterans with a mission to help end veteran suicide. Based on recent VA studies, we lose an average of 17 to 22 Veterans to suicide each day. Since the 2011 VA study, the number 22 has become a symbol associated with veteran suicide awareness. No matter the current statistic, we believe that even one veteran dying by suicide is too many. Through our partners, we help connect veterans and first responders to mental health resources, support networks, and activities designed to build camaraderie and/or improve the symptoms of post-traumatic stress. Each month, we donate at least $1 from every coffee product sold online to our partners and other organizations sharing our Cause.
