More solider suicides than combat deaths in January
“One week after the U.S. Army announced record suicide rates among its soldiers last year, the service is worried about a spike in possible suicides in the new year.”
“The Army said 24 soldiers are believed to have committed suicide in January alone — six times as many as killed themselves in January 2008, according to statistics released Thursday.”
MSNBC’s Tamron Hall talked to John Soltz of VoteVets.orgs about the rise in soldier suicides.
