Eleven to 20 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from it. 70 Percent of all suicides are of veterans 50 and older. A veteran commits suicide every 65 minutes.
Our government wastes so much money on stupid things why can't they do more for our veterans who sacrificed so much for us. If we lose one veteran to suicide we have all failed.
