Source Earlier today, Fort Campbell, a U.S. Army post, announced that it would be "shutting down" for around three days, in spite of a recent string of 11 suicides among its soldiers. This is an ongoing trend, with there being a total of 133 Army suicides last year, and already 64 this year alone. This brings with it a valid point. What is the cause(s) for a record number of suicides among combat troops? What should the government/military do to prevent suicides in the military, and in turn, domestically as well?
