Under Reported News Story #4


More US Soldiers Committed Suicide Than Died in Combat

This article details that for the second year in a row that more soldiers due to suicide (468) then in combat (468). Evidently, there needs to be more rehabilitation programs for these soldiers to diminish these appalling statistics. “One soldier, Jess Goodell, recounts a marine brought into the unit still breathing. She frantically called to her superiors, to which they simply replied, “wait.” She watched while he died. When she returned to the US, Goodell like many others, was diagnosed with deep depression, substance abuse, PTSD and anxiety.” Is this really the treatment of soldiers that leave home and risk their lives for essentially a war for oil?
