The Friends of Monuments of Courage affiliated with the Purple Heart Chapter 0900 and The Veterans of Foreign Wars announced that they collaborated with Tech and the Saddle Tramps to ring the bell in honor of Veteran's Day, Danny Kotch, a member of the friends of Monuments of Courage said.

Approximately 20 veterans commit suicide each day, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
