In addition to being a Dad and business owner, Jonathan is passionate about helping fellow veterans. Jonathan Clarke, a 100% service-connected disabled Army veteran has been working at Lake Murray Event Rentals since fall of 2017. During this time, Jon has learned how the business is run, has developed strong relationships with customers and suppliers, and has learned how to readjust to the civilian world. Jon was medically discharged from the Army in 2016. Jon is passionate about helping Veterans reacclimate to the civilian world and has become an advocate for the nonprofit Mission 22.
A single number has shaped the way that Americans think about young military veterans. It's the number 22, as in, 22 vets take their lives each day. The number has become a rallying cry for advocates trying to call attention to suicide among vets, especially those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
