The Long Tail of War

Department of Veterans Affairs Suicide Data Report, 2012

A qualified report based on limited data but still indicative.  Figure 6 on page 21shows a high rate of suicide in Washington.  Not surprising at all.

I have long gotten those reports, and I find them so difficult to read. I have become as accustomed as I can to seeing it put so coldly down on paper. The part I cannot wrap my mind around is that these are active duty ONLY reports. And my mind is haunted in the most literal sense by the unseen names and numbers of men and women who have ETS'd out of military purview.
