Suicides Among US Soldiers Almost 1 Per Day has;

Suicide Rate Among US Soldiers Almost One Per Day

"The Associated Press
Suicides are surging among America's troops, averaging nearly one a day this year - the fastest pace in the nation's decade of war.
"The reasons for the increase are not fully understood. Among explanations, studies have pointed to combat exposure, post-traumatic stress, misuse of prescription medications and personal financial problems. Army data suggest soldiers with multiple combat tours are at greater risk of committing suicide, although a substantial proportion of Army suicides are committed by soldiers who never deployed."

And There you have it. The US Military can't peddle enough of these psychotropic confusion chemicals fast enough. The original article says 'Misuse'. 
See the second half of this next post and you'll understand WHY with Psychiatric drugs the term 'Misuse' is a Misnomer.
GAO Questions Cost Saving Methodology

What is So difficult to understand about that stunningly frank admission from the VA itself is mind boggling in itself, until we take into account the actual Governmental meat grinder that All such facts must be processed through: endless committees must balance endless testimony from one financially interested witness after another against the testimony from one victim or surviving family member after another, as endless lobbyists contiguously toss endless buckets of financial brakes into getting the problem cleaned up.
"But Xenakis said he worries that many senior military officers do not grasp the nature of the suicide problem." ..... "I am personally fed up with soldiers who are choosing to take their own lives so that others can clean up their mess. Be an adult, act like an adult, and deal with your real-life problems like the rest of us." He did also counsel soldiers to seek help."
The help itself is what's fueling the rise in suicides.
