    And then there is this - perhaps the saddest of all.

    The Army released suicide data for the month of June today. Among active-duty soldiers there were no confirmed suicides and nine potential suicides. In May, the Army reported one confirmed suicide and 16 potential suicides among active-duty soldiers. Since that time, seven have been confirmed and nine remain under investigation.

    There have been 88 reported active-duty suicides in the Army during calendar year 2009. Of these, 54 have been confirmed, and 34 are pending determination of manner of death. For the same period in 2008, there were 67 confirmed suicides among active-duty soldiers.

    Thanks for collecting these & posting updates. I used to read the list
    from newspapers every week, but I don't always stop to think & pray
    for these brave soldiers I can't help but think of Sen Kerry saying.

    How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam - How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?

    -- John Kerry in his 1971 appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee

    Just substitute Iran Or Afganistan for Vietnam.
