"The mental health and well-being of our courageous men and women who have served the nation is the highest priority for VA, and even one suicide is one too many." - VA Secretary Eric K. Shinseki
For those who serve, the struggle does not always end when they return to American soil. A U.S. military veteran commits suicide every 65 minutes, on average, according to a recent study from the Department of Veterans Affairs. An older, less detailed government analysis reported that about 18 former service members kill themselves each day. But a recent, more precise study of veteran suicides from 1999 to 2010 shows that the number is heartbreakingly higher: 22 deaths per day.
