On the December 27th edition of Public Pulse on NewsTalk 930 KROE, Sheridan architect Tim Belton of Malone, Belton, Abel was the guest, but not to discuss building design in Sheridan. Rather, he spoke about his involvement in developing a unique tool to aid combat veterans returning from war.

Called the AnswerRing for Combat Veterans, it is an educational device designed to easily and quickly help combat veterans recognize the problems they're having, and then provide them with immediate suggestions for how to start getting help. Belton explains.

Belton indicates that by providing the AnswerRing to veterans upon returning home or upon discharge from service, the military can give them a solution tool like no other: that the veteran never has to admit to needing any help to take this first step.

So how has it been received?

Belton says the idea for the AnswerRing originated in the 1990's out of his background in cultural anthropology as well as his architectural design expertise.
