We have lost more troops to suicide then we have to enemy actions.

A 30 second investment of Google would have prevented this kind of stupid. You can't teach intelligence.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

NPR only counted deaths where the soldier openly committed suicide.
For instance, if a sober person serves in Iraq, comes back with an alcohol problem, and dies in a DUI car crash, that is not considered suicide. But to a PTSD trained therapist, this death could have been avoided with successful interventions. To a PTSD therapist, this kind of death is directly related to PTSD and the service that was performed in defense of our country. It is not technically a suicide, it is a death cause by PTSD.
How asinine!Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

While they are at it, maybe DU can tell us the suicide stats on WWII vets and see how they stack up?CU's Paranormal Expert.

She really takes a shelacking in that thread. Good.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

Gotta love stats, and the folks who put them together.
My Dad passed away in '86, and his death cert said "smoking". He was a WW1 vet. He smoked and drank all his life, as did Grandpa, who was a Civil War vet. Uhhhhhhh, Dad was 91! Grandpa was 90! As a vet who smokes and drinks, I am continuing the family tradition.
But when I die, I want "birth" on my cert as the cause of death, not PTSD from Laos!
