Veteran Suicides Climbing
By Harold Hutchison
America is losing 23 veterans a day to suicide, and the problems have been getting worse in recent years. To put that number in perspective, the number per day translate to over 8300 veterans a year committing suicide.
According to a report by Breitbart News, the stats are staggering. The suicide rate has climbed by over 30% among active-duty military since 2008. A report covering suicides in 2011 noted that 301 suicides occurred among active-duty troops that year.
