suicide is more of a problem with the person then his profession. trying to blame the military for causing suicide is b.s. that same person would of probably committed suicide if he worked in a factory. maybe when they signed up for all them goodies that the government promised them, they should of read the small print, where it said you just might go to war, that is what the military is about.
The Army is always looking through its binoculars backwards. Yes, active duty suicide is astounding. However, what about post-discharge? That is even MORE astounding. To get really adventurous look at the Viet Nam Veteran suicide rate. Soldier/Veteran suicides have them reeling and all they can do is fire paper at it.
