Veterans Suicide Rates

According to new data released by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), young veterans committed suicide at a rate three times that of active-duty members.  The data released by the VA tracked veterans who were recently out of the service and receiving health care.  A discussion of this issue can be found in this article published in USA Today.

  1. This is really interesting. I wonder if it's because, when you're active in the service, you're surrounded by your peers...and, thus, 1)busy and 2)supported by their company and common circumstance.
    Thanks for bringing attention to this article.
