Officials: Army suicides at 3-decade high


news.yahoo.com

By PAULINE JELINEK, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON – Suicides among U.S. soldiers rose last year to the highest level in decades, the Army announced Thursday. At least 128 soldiers killed themselves in 2008. But the final count is likely to be considerably higher because 15 more suspicious deaths are still being investigated and could also turn out to be self-inflicted.

The new suicide figure compares with 115 in 2007 and 102 in 2006 and is the highest since record keeping began in 1980.

Another sad statistic due to the phony and never-ending "War on Terror."
