Right now, there are more soldiers falling on their own swords than there are falling to the sword.
Since at least 2005, 17 (yes, seventeen) veterans kill themselves each and every day. They are broken and in need of compassion, and what’s worse, they are standing behind you in line at Whole Foods, sitting next to you in Church on Sunday, and sharing notes with you in class. The data was collected by CBS in a report they aired in 2007, and Congress.org found that in 2009 & 2010, there were more suicides of active duty troops than there were combat fatalities in Iraq and Afghanistan COMBINED!
