From a blogger who is actually in the american army:

Itís no secret that the military is facing a staggering suicide rate, more than one every day now. The trend was spotted years ago, and was the basis for justifying 2009's $125 Mil. 'Spiritual Fitness' nonsense. Since then, the suicide rate has skyrocketed, as more and more money is being wasted on a religious approach to a mental health problem.

Since I made that info-graphic a few months back, the Armyís data suggests an even bigger increase may be looming. According to Fort Jacksonís Commanding General, the Army tallied 38 suicides for July 2012.

What brought that on? this. Original posting here.

Another example of this guy's lunacy here.
