At least 99 American soldiers killed themselves last year, the US army's highest suicide rate in 26 years, according to a new report.
The rate of 17.3 suicides per 100,000 soldiers compares with 12.8 in 2005, officials said.
Twenty-eight of the soldiers who took their own life last year did so while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The army listed failed relationships, legal and financial issues and work stress as factors behind the suicides.
