The following video links [also on our video page] contain important information regarding one of the leading causes for death by suicide:
When I started Team Veteran the suicide rate was 16 Veterans a day, then it went to 18 per day and now it is 22 to 30 per day and still the suicide rate climbs.
(Side note: TVet believes the phrase “…Veterans Commit Suicide…” needs to be addressed as Veterans Die By Suicide)
For the last four or five years I have been very confused and shocked why more people didn’t ask the question “What can I do to help stop the Veteran suicide rate?” Or something similar.
The comments I read on Facebook regarding this photo were disgusting in my opinion, they told me why people just don’t care about Veteran suicide. Maybe people are just Ignorant of the facts, or MAYBE they’re just ignorant. I have been involved with over 30 active duty or Veteran suicides and I never met a coward or a selfish person of those 30. Let me shine a little light to some of the causes for Veteran suicide.
