Army Suicides At High Level
Not surprisingly, the army has seen an increase in suicides recently. A news article about this is referenced in the post below from Real Men Are Not. Luke, in his post, correctly identifies this as a men's issue (linked to the concept of "real men don't cry or seek help"). The current rates of suicide are the highest since 1993 - which follows the first Gulf War. I am also reminded of the name of the song from the TV show M.A.S.H.(about doctors in the Korean War): "Suicide is Painless".
