Instagram Network Seeks To Prevent Suicides Among Veterans

Scott Pelley reported on the CBS Evening News (6/15, story 6, 2:45, Pelley) that the VA estimates that 22 of the two million American veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan “die each day by their own hand.” Correspondent Chip Reid added that two veterans have “launched an Instagram suicide prevention network” which encourages veterans “who are having suicidal thoughts to call them, any time, day or night.”
