Why are so many war veterans committing suicide?
From the article “The VA estimated that in 2009, 6000 veterans committed suicide. It has also said that on average 950 suicides are attempted each month by veterans who are receiving some type of VA treatment. That’s an average 31 veterans attempting suicide per day. These tragic numbers only represent the limited segment of veterans who interact with the VA. ”
This is an epidemic. Why is this happening?
