US Military Suicides



An American soldier dies every day and a half on average in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Veterans kill themselves at a rate of one every 80 minutes.



More than 6,500 veteran suicides are logged every year —


A military base ‘on the brink’



By Kim Murphy, Los Angeles Times reporting from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.
December 26, 2011



Mom, I’m a murderer



He had a ready answer: “Mom, I’m a murderer.”



He told her how his team had kicked in the door of an Iraqi house and quickly shot a man inside.



With the man lying wounded on the floor, “my son got ordered by his sergeant to stand on his chest to make him bleed out faster,” Kirkland said.



“He said, ‘We’ve got to move, and he’s got to die before we move.’”



Not long after, Derrick told her, he had fallen asleep on guard duty, awakening as a car was driving through his checkpoint.



So my son shot up the car



He yelled for it to stop, but the family in the car spoke no English.



“So my son shot up the car,” she said.



Summing up her son’s mental state after that deployment, Kirkland said: “What’s a nice word for saying that he was completely [messed] up?”



Kirkland relates the remaining years of her son’s life as if reading a script: He was depressed by his wife’s request for a divorce.



On a second deployment in Iraq, he was caught putting a gun in his mouth and evacuated on suicide watch to Germany.



There, he tried to overdose on pills.



He was flown back to his home base here in Washington state.



After a brief psychiatric evaluation, he was left alone in his room.



He hanged himself with a cord in his closet.



In the closet, dead



Apparently worried that no one would notice, Spc. Kirkland left a note on the door of the locker in his room.
“In the closet, dead,” it said.



Wars have always sent many of their practitioners home with lingering emotional scars, but the growing toll of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts is catching up not only with the U.S. military, but with communities like this.

  • Isn't it heart-warming to know that Russian TV is so concerned about the welfare of American soldiers.
    No hidden motive here.

    • @adolf77
      Thats obvious !!

      The USA lied about the WMD on Iraq to justify a war and now they hide the truth about the KIAs with these fake suicides !

      Why only now on this war the suicide number is high ?? Why not during the Vietnam war ? Why not on the USSR war against the terrorists on Afghanistan ? Why not on Korea ??

      Its very strange.

    • @talibanpouwer Muhammad DOESN'T EXIST neither does JESUS. It's a book you idiot. I read harry potter that doesn't mean I believe wizards exist. Just so you know when I go to book stores I get all the korans and put them in the FICTION section.

    • @no compromise truth Why make an assumption with "probably"? You know me, so tell me what I believe in. Does Austria violate its own constitution? Sure it does, does America? Every fucking day. Police are a great example of it, in case you needed one.

    • @no compromise why not kill yourself and go to your god and heaven ?

      why would i kill myself, i enjoy being alive, but i also will happily accept death when it happens, it doesn't scare me one bit

      Your argument is fundamentally flawed...because I am American, I do not hate you for being Iranian, I do not hate anyone because of where they were born. I critique your viewpoints just as I do everyone else's...and yet you fail to see that maybe not everyone from the US is a redneck.
