    Army Releases October Suicide Data

    The Army released suicide data today for the month of October. Among active-duty soldiers, there were nine potential suicides: two have been confirmed as suicides, and seven remain under investigation. For September, the Army reported 19 potential suicides among active-duty soldiers. Since the release of that report, six have been confirmed as suicides, and 13 remain under investigation.

    During October 2010, among reserve component soldiers who were not on active duty, there were 16 potential suicides. For September, among that same group, there were 10 total suicides. Of those, four were confirmed as suicides and six are pending determination of the manner of death.

    “Army efforts continue to focus on individuals who engage in high-risk behavior. Risk within the force cannot be mitigated by suicide prevention programs alone. Army leaders at every level have an enormous influence on helping to eliminate the stigma surrounding seeking behavioral health assistance, reducing high-risk behavior and reducing our unacceptable casualty rates,” said Col. Chris Philbrick, deputy director of the Army Health Promotion, Risk Reduction Task Force.

    “Through the coordinated efforts of leaders, medical professionals, chaplains, families and other members of the Army team, we can provide holistic care for those who seek help, while acting positively to reduce the high-risk population,” Philbrick said.

    I don't know if this is the right place for this article. Grace, if you want
    it removed, please let me know. I will delete it, no problem. But, I think it
    is a topic that goes hand in hand with the terrible loss of America's finest
    hopes for the future.

    America, permanent war???

    From TIME magazine -

    On Saturday Nov. 27, the United States and its allies will reach a grim milestone: they will have been in Afghanistan a day longer than the Soviet Union had been when it completed its 1989 withdrawal. What's more, the U.S. announced during last weekend's NATO summit that it intends to spend at least four more years, and possibly longer, in the Hindu Kush. Even then, many Afghans — perhaps even the president installed by the U.S. invasion — appear to doubt that the Americans will succeed where their erstwhile Cold War nemesis failed.

    A U.S. soldier that was interviewed over there said in the short term the war will not seem to gain much but in the long term of things it should? It is a thought to ponder.

    Death of Canadian Forces Member Recognized as Afghanistan Casualty


    OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2010) - Following a review of the Canadian Forces' casualty policy, the Chief of the Defence Staff, General Walt Natynczyk, today announced his decision to add the name of Captain Francis (Frank) Cecil Paul to the official list of Canadian Forces (CF) casualties sustained in support of the mission in Afghanistan. Capt Paul died in Canada last February while on leave from Kandahar.

    "Although his death came suddenly while on leave from his deployment in Afghanistan, he was still on duty and considered part of the mission, and therefore his death is no less important than any other CF member who served and died while in Afghanistan," said Gen Natynczyk. "It is important that his name be added to the list of fallen."

    Following his death, Capt Paul was awarded the sacrifice medal and his name was added to the seventh book of remembrance. His family was also presented with the Memorial Cross.

    Following today's announcement, Capt Paul's photo has been placed on the CF's Fallen Canadians web site and a minute of silence will be observed throughout Department of National Defence and CF facilities in the National Capital Region on Monday, November 29.

    Capt Paul died of natural causes in Canada while on leave from deployment on 10 February 2010. He was a member of 28 Field Ambulance in Ottawa. While deployed in operations, he was the adjutant for the health services support unit of Joint Task Force Afghanistan. The number of fallen is now established at 153.
