Army Suicides Increase Again
The number of Army suicides increased again last year, amid the most violent year yet in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Two defense officials said Thursday that 108 troops committed suicide in 2007, six more than the previous year. The 108 confirmed deaths in 2007 among active duty soldiers and National Guard and Reserve troops that had been activated was lower than previously feared. Suicides have been rising during the five-year-old war in Iraq and nearly seven years of war in Afghanistan. The 108 deaths last year followed 102 in 2006, 85 in 2005, and 67 in 2004.

Suicide is actually very common during wartime. Nevertheless this is horrible and alarming and I pray for the families that have been left behind.

I don't know why anyone would be shocked by this news. With back-to-back tours and less support then ever, it doesn't surprise me that more soldiers are committing suicide.
