All Military Branches CartoonSo the statistics just came out and 2012 was the highest year so far in veteran suicides.  The number have constantly been going up for the past decade with each subsequent year the new highest year for veteran suicides.

On the same note, two of the most popular posts on my website have been posts about PTSD and what to do if you/a friend/or a spouse has PTSD.  A week doesn’t go by where I don’t get at least two or three emails of people looking for help, either for themselves or a friend.

Just thought I’d mention those two things.  Things don’t seem to be getting better, only worse.  What more can we do?
