Solidiers and Suicide

Click to visit the original post

According to a report from Associated Press in the first 155 days of 2012, there were 154 suicides among active duty US troops .

The AP analysis of Department of Defense data shows nearly 50 percent more troops killed themselves than were killed by combat in Afghanistan. This means that if things continue this way it will be the third year in a row that more American soldiers—both enlisted men and women and veterans—committed suicide than were killed in combat.
