    CNN did a spread (from interviews to a photo essay to a personal account to videos) about the suicides the military doesn't count; that is, suicides of relatives of military veterans. They interviewed the wife of a Marine who had suicidal thoughts, parents of a veteran who'd lost the veteran and their daughter, who took her own life, among others.

    It's long, but they did a really terrific job, and it's worth reading, or at least taking a look at. I read the whole thing, and I have no words.

    I, too, saw parts of this. It is very well done and, well, disturbing. I'm only sure that I don't understand it, and am praying that someone who knows more than me will find some answers. I'm thinking some good folks on the forum may have insight to what seems like a real tangled mess to me.
