For those that are not in the Military now, Suicides and Suicide prevention are a hot topic. With the high optempo, the numbers of Suicides are climbing. Watch your buddy's 6 and step in if needed. Here are two parts from the article linked to below telling of the 4 Soldiers from Hood that passed away (plus a wife) this past weekend:

"FORT HOOD, Texas The apparent murder-suicide of a soldier and his wife is among a rash of suspected suicides in recent days at Fort Hood, where the number of cases this year in which soldiers took their own lives has already matched the post's record, Army officials said Tuesday."

"Two soldiers died in separate incidents Saturday. One soldier who served four tours in Iraq was found dead of a gunshot wound in his home in a nearby town. Another soldier, who served in the Gulf War and in Iraq, died in his Fort Hood home Saturday.

A fourth soldier died of a gunshot wound Friday in a nearby town. He had returned in December after a yearlong deployment in Iraq.
