It is terrible that we lose any of our soldiers. But to lose more than half, 13
out of 19, to suicide is just heartbreaking. My God give peace to their souls
and may their loved ones have His spirit to be with them.
War is a terrible thing. The only thing worse than war itself would be the
realization that the war was not fought for reasons commonly attributed to it.
But instead was the result of greed and the desire of some to rule others, and
that group of others, is the people that you are fighting and dying for. Military service is probably the most immoral, uncontrolled feelings,
selfish, and anti-others group in the world. But for people expecting an
impending death, it would be hard to fault them. Military people are not stupid
and thrust into such a lifestyle has to make conflicts arise in their mind. The
military lifestyle, its reasons, and the apparent phony aggrandizement heaped
upon them might be a contributing cause a war to erupt in the soldiers mind.
The suicide rate for military people in the USA is about 22 per day.
The suicide rate for law enforcement officers in the USA is about
15 per day.
