Letrice Titus joined the Army when her husband was deployed to Iraq. She had two small children and had finished her master’s degree in mental health counseling. When she didn’t pass the 12-week Officer Candidate School, Letrice, determined to lead in a meaningful way, became an Army behavioral health specialist. She evaluated soldiers deploying and those coming back.
Now she spends her days as a counselor in the Canandaigua VA Hospital. All calls to the VA Veterans Crisis Line are routed to Canandaigua. When someone in crisis dials that number, the person on the other end of the line may be Letrice. We watch how she handles a call and learn about the influence her service has on her.
