"Un-Visible" is a story about a US 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines Veteran Steven Rodgers, who takes his own life after serving his country, and about the family that he leaves behind.
"Margarita Reyes is the sister of Elias Reyes Jr. Elias who served with Second Battalion, Seventh Marines (2004-2008). In April 2014, Elias lost his life to suicide. Since then, Margarita has devoted her life to ending the veteran suicide epidemic. When she lost her brother, 2/7 veterans supported her family through the devastating loss. The suicides from her brother’s battalion continued to rise and she wanted to do more."
