Millennial Veterans May Be At Greatest Risk For Suicide, Study Suggests

The Washington Times (12/7, Scarborough) reports that a new study conducted by psychologists from the National Center for Veterans Studies at the University of Utah concludes that the US military’s suicide rate “is more a generational trait than a wartime offshoot.” Researchers found that 18- to 24-year old veterans are more likely to be products of single-parent homes, have “more adverse childhood experiences,” and have “diminished social integration.”
