U.S. military is going to launch a study to better understand why people suicide while in the military. Evidently the rate now exceeds that of the civilian population which is not usual. With all the variables that the study plans to examine it is to be hoped that they'll also look at the possible role played by the "stop-loss" orders that are extracting more service involuntarily out of the people who have already served. It would be interesting to see if there is a correlation between the two.
