I would have thought that this thread would have 50 comments by now. For years we’ve been reading and hearing about the suicide rates among our military, always with the suggestion or pronouncement that the rate was due to multiple deployments and PTSD. And, now, it turns out that the rate is due to people with serious issues enlisting and never deploying. The new strategy ought to be, in large part, to better ID the trouble before an enlistee takes the oath. Oh, and the Pentagonals might give some serious reconsideration to admitting transgenders while they’re at it. They, like the one who was shot outside of the NSA, seem to have a penchant for self destruction.
