Tom Indorf has worked in CDF’s Inspection department for 17-years. Prior to that, he served 4-years in in the US Marine Corp, where he saw active duty all over the world, including Africa and Europe. More recently, he founded Save 22, an outreach program for veterans to help them cope with life issues. The 22 refers to the number of veterans committing suicide each day from PTSD, alcohol, drug abuse, disability, homelessness and other issues. With one chapter in Carroll County, Ohio, and new ones in Michigan and Indiana, Save 22 provides a link between veterans and professional caregivers, other outreach programs, job placement professionals and the like. Last May, over 570 veterans and concerned citizens joined Tom in a hike from the Carroll County VFW to the Carroll County Fairgrounds to bring attention to the difficulties of veterans returning to civilian life.
Tom recently spoke to the Kiwanis Club at Belden Village to share his organization’s goals, efforts and achievements.
