A local couple is leading an effort to support the military, and shine the light on the problem of veteran suicide.  The Military Prayer Ministry based at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Alton is sponsoring a Rosary Walk on Sunday starting at 2pm from Marquette Catholic High School.

John and Kris Kline organized the group which holds a Military Mass on the third Monday of each month at 6pm at Saints Peter and Paul.  Their son Kraig has been in the Army for 13 years, and John says starting the support group was a way for them to find others in the area who are experiencing the same thing:

Through the year, the group also collects items to send to those who are serving.  The Rosary walk will begin at Marquette tomorrow at 2pm and the group will walk to St. Mary's Church and back.  Anyone of any faith is welcome to join the group or attend the Mass on Monday evening.  For more information, call 466-8951.
