Mental health is a concern among veterans of war.

Studies have found veterans are much more likely to commit suicide than civilians.

Craig Bryan, executive director of the National Center for Veterans Studies, was in studio Monday to talk about mental health among veterans.

The National Center for Veteran Studies in conjunction with Combat Veteran's Motorcycle Association, the American Hitmen and The Royal Bar will hold a ride and concert to raise money to further research and sponsor treatment for veterans through the NCVS.

This event will include a ride to various Veteran Memorials in the Salt Lake Valley as well as a concert at the Royal Bar featuring the American Hitmen.
