Veteran suicides

The U.S. has been waging endless wars in seven countries resulting in an estimated 4 million Muslim deaths in the Middle East and Northern Africa, not to mention widespread chaos in the region, and millions of refugees fleeing to Europe and beyond.


In the Vietnam war, more than 58,000 Americans were killed in combat and estimates say 3-4 million Vietnamese were killed, two-thirds of which were civilians.


As many as 200,000 U.S. Vietnam veterans have committed suicide, more than three times the number that died in combat.


Overall, 22 U.S. veterans commit suicide every single day.


Recent studies have suggested that those who served in recent conflicts are 30 percent to 200 percent more likely to commit suicide than their ­non-veteran peers.
