Suicide rate increases among military

Friday, June 8, 2012 - 2:41pm

FORT HOOD -- Heart wrenching numbers were released by the Pentagon saying this year one soldier has committed suicide everyday. Which is double the number of those killed in action this year.

Suicides had leveled off in 2010 and 2011 and officials have yet to understand why this year has increased.

2009 was the highest military suicide year to date, but at the rate 2012 is going, it will be 16 percent above 2009.
