November 2007
Soldiers;Nov2007, Vol. 62 Issue 11, p24
This article suggests a way to prevent soldiers from killing themselves. According to Chaplain (Maj. Gen.) Douglas L. Carver, soldiers who commit suicide usually do because they cannot see another way out of a painful situation. One factor contributing to a soldier's suicidal behavior is frequent and longer deployments. Community counseling programs will be offered to soldiers who are at risk of this behavior.
