Military suicides a mounting problem

An article by Erica Goode of The New York Times reports on the mounting number of soldiers committing suicide, detailing the stories of four soldiers from the 1451st Transportation Company.  "The four suicides, in a unit of roughly 175 soldiers, make the company an extreme example of what experts see as an alarming trend in the years since the invasion of Iraq." Between January and mid-July of this year, there have been more soldiers lost to suicide than have died in combat during the same period.
