VA Not Doing Enough To Combat The Crisis Of Suicides Among Veterans

In an editorial, USA Today (9/15) asserts, “A veteran is choosing death every 72 minutes, and the” Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) “could be doing more to keep that person alive.” USA Today charges that the VA’s “mammoth bureaucracy, second only to the Pentagon, has been slow to embrace new ideas, chief among them managing the urge to commit suicide and not just treating underlying illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder or severe depression.”
