More on suicide

Yesterday I blogged about the prevalence of suicide involving teenagers, college students, professional athletes and married couples.

Today came this headline in the New York Times: "Four Suicides in a Week Take a Toll on Fort Hood."

"Four veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan died this week from what appeared to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds at Fort Hood in central Texas, raising the toll of soldiers who died here at their own hands to a record level and alarming Army commanders."
