I have written about this before but the VA has acknowledged that on average 126 veterans, 18 per day are committing suicide.

Brig. Gen. Michael J. Kussman, the undersecretary for health at the VA, sent the email, dated Dec. 15, 2007. Kussman had inquired about the accuracy of a news report published that month claiming the suicide rate among veterans was 18 per day.

Remember that while veterans comprise only 11% of our population they make up 25% of the nation’s homeless population. This is how we treat our veterans. This illustrates what a great and patriotic nation we are. Write Congress and vote to fund veterans benefits and above all get help for all the veterans from all the wars, get them to the VA for treatment.
