Why? Who are the at risk veterans? This is the first time i’ve read about the age of those killing themselves. Is it the identity of aging in general, financial problems, lack of employment, PTSD–? And the younger military service members, Why? Personal relationships, monetary, employment, conflict of personal morals vs military activity? Feelings of disempowerment servings without a voice. A feeling of being trapped in a situation where their only remedy appears to end misery?
I don’t think we are being educated about what’s really happening. Do You?

War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Well, except to line the pockets of military profiteers, and to bring misery, death and destruction to fellow human beings.
