BMT Memorial Day Suicide Prevention Fundraiser 2014

Continuing the futures.io (formerly BMT) tradition, I want to draw attention to Memorial Day. Specifically to the suicide rate in armed forces.

A veteran commits suicide every 80 minutes (that is 18 per day). It is estimated that veteran suicides account for nearly 20% of all suicides in America, even though less than 1% of the population has served in the military.

Veterans are almost five times more likely to commit suicide than non-veterans. Suicide accounted for more than 25% of all deaths among veterans age 17-24.

Excellent idea Big Mike. I will not forget to make a donation

Those suicide facts are shocking. A lot of vets are homeless too.

Not to get off topic but it is odd to me that people who leave the US to live somewhere else are called expats or ex patriots.

It kind of sounds like they have joined the enemy or something.
