Fort Hood has confirmed 14 suicide cases, and six more are under investigation. Fort Hood officials held a press conference today to address the rising suicide numbers.

Larry Felkner's son is in the U.S. Navy. He says something should be done to help. "They need to pull them in, and talk to them on an individual bases. When they come out of situations like wars or anything like that, that would traumatize anybody, especially young men and young women that have been in that line of fire because there's nothing more devastating than war."

Leaders at Fort Hood say they are frustrated by the growing numbers and are looking for new ways to support soldiers and their families and want all soldiers to know what help is available to them.
