As a veteran of the US military this story strikes an especially sorrowing cord with me. The men and women who voluntarily serve in our armed forces deserve our respect and more importantly they deserve our respect. The epidemic of suicide is a horrifying reality resulting from the longest war in US history. We as a nation need to stand up for the rights of our soldiers to receive adequate healthcare as they return home from an unjust war. We as a nation need to stand up for an end to war as a solution for the problems of the world; war creates far more problems than it solves.
