[Fort Hood's leaders have tried nearly everything to stop the suicides. There are support groups and hotlines, counseling sessions and Reiki healing therapies, and strict assessment guidelines for commanders.

But the soldiers keep killing themselves. This past weekend, four more were dead at the Texas post, all of them decorated veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, three of them sergeants, two of them fathers of young children.

All four appear to have shot themselves, according to preliminary reports gathered for the Army's Suicide Prevention Task Force. Their deaths, which did not appear to be related, came within a few days of a visit from the Army's vice chief of staff, who reiterated his urgent plea for hurting soldiers to seek help.

"Every one of these is tragic," said Maj. Gen. William Grimsley, who commands Fort Hood, the nation's largest Army post. "It's personally and professionally frustrating as a leader."

"It came out of nowhere," said Spec. Dana Blomquist, 23, whose former squad leader, Sgt. Timothy Ryan Rinella, 29, was found dead in nearby Copperas Cove, Tex., on Saturday. "He always had a smile on his face. He cared for so much for his soldiers and people that weren't even his soldiers. There are so many people who are feeling guilty, but he never really showed any of the normal signs of people needing help."

So far, 104 Army troops have killed themselves this year, a rate that eclipses the one in the civilian world. The rate at Fort Hood, where 14 suicides already are confirmed this year and six other deaths are under investigation, is nearly four times that of the civilian population.

Grimsley said he saw no indication that the increase in suicides is related to November's mass shooting, when an Army psychiatrist allegedly opened fire inside the post and killed 13 people.

how sad ............
Yes it is sad, but these are the results of sending special forces and others into other nations to kill due to a lie

and then reward them for executing the most heinous killings.
The numbers ofthe Vietnamese wars ; MeLy Massacres, occuring in Iraq and Afghanistan,
if read one after another would stop a person from wanting to eat for a minute.

Added to that the use of weapons such as white phosphorous that, that slowly peeps the flesh of a childs face down to bone.

Watching private armies rape young boys and girls and being told to look the other way

and all due to a lie,
and then have wake consciousness flash backs of all of that inspite of what meds prescibed?

Now MKultra is real and both "Manchurian Candidate" movies revieled actual forms of mind control used by Army Intel,

so what experiments are going on there who knows?

many are aware of the CIA connection to Jim Jones, and the Granada incident.

Then they may have waited to offer treatment when the soldier is tanding with a razor to thier wrist, rather then when the soldier first asked for treatment

The Right To Heal – And Not Suffer In the First Place


To mark the ninth anniversary of the carnage in Afghanistan, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Against the War will march in D.C. on Oct. 7 to launch the first veteran-led campaign to stop the deployment of soldiers traumatized by multiple tours of duty. They cite soaring vets' rates of PTSD, violent crimes and suicides as the unacceptable cost of an endless, pointless war.

"I was denied treatment for the mental and physical wounds I sustained in battle," says Ethan McCord, whose unit was filmed in Wikileaks' "Collateral Murder" video. "IVAW's campaign is critical for soldiers because we are asserting our right to heal."

Truly sad but I am not surprised or shocked.

This news story reminds me of the "rash" of murder-suicides amongs military men in the 90s.....sometimes, their whole family was killed: wife and children and then they killed themselves......sometimes they didn't killed themselves but just the wife or wife and children.
