"It's not surprising, then, he gets bitter, he clings to golf clubs or basketballs or antipathy to white people who aren't like him or anti-American sentiment or anti-capitalist sentiment as a way to explain his frustrations." ~ Helianthus

In that post you say
in response to deltabtry's post which says (in part)Absolutely goddamned right!!!!!!
Instead of remembering these dead soldiers as "soldier, airman, sailor or marine", you are remembering them as people who entered service with a mental illness.One thing about being in the military in all branches that if the worst is to happen, we all want to be remembered as a soldier, airman, sailor or marine,
Good reversal of policy, my 2c.
just terrible statististics.
More U.S. Soldiers Killed Themselves Than Died in Combat in 2010
For the second year in a row, more American soldiersóboth enlisted men and women and veteransócommitted suicide than were killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Excluding accidents and illness, 462 soldiers died in combat, while 468 committed suicide. A difference of six isn't vast by any means, but the symbolism is significant and troubling. In 2009, there were 381 suicides by military personnel, a number that also exceeded the number of combat deaths.
