This is sad news:
A new report released by the Pentagon on Friday indicates the suicide rate among active-duty military remains high, and is nearly double what it was in the years leading up to the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.
The Defense Department reported there were 265 active-military member deaths in 2015. Although that figure is down from 2012’s peak at 321, it is still nearly double the 2001 figure of 145 deaths.
