A new report by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) has revealed that suicide death among troops on combat missions on foreign lands, is higher than actual combat death among troops. Actual combat death is death recorded during fighting ‘enemy’ troops. Suicide death is committed by the troops themselves, who take their own lives due to some factors.
The disturbing report is the DoD 2014 calendar year Suicide Event Report (DoDSER), which details the number of suicide attempts and deaths of United States service members. The report only focused on the 2014 calendar year.
