Suicides Eclipse Car Crashes As Top Non-Combat Cause Of US Troop Deaths.

The Time (6/15, Thompson) “Battleland” blog reported, “For years, motor-vehicle accidents have killed more US troops than any other non-combat cause.” However, “that changed Wednesday” with May’s issue of the Pentagon’s Medical Surveillance Monthly Report, “which tracks trends in troops’ ailments and medical care.” According to Time, “in the dry and clinical prose favored by the medical community, the report said that in each of the past two years, more troops have died at their own hands than in motor-vehicle accidents.”
