Suicide Rate Breaks Army Record from ’09


According to the current edition of the Army Times (12/27, 104K), the US Army “has set a new calendar year record for soldier suicides — with one month still to count.” By the end of the year, the “2010 suicide rate will be more than 10 percent more than last year and as much as three times the rate in 2006.”

The Times adds that through November of this year, “127 non-active-duty Guard and Reserve soldiers killed themselves, compared to 80 such suicides in all of 2009.”

Editor’s Note: Must be all those risky behaviors our fighting men and women engage in.
