We Are The Mighty

On this day in 1968, the brutal Tet Offensive comes to an end.


Female veteran suicides by firearm are up 4.1 percent since 2001, suicides by poisoning are down 13 percent, suicide by suffocation is up 11.1 percent and suicide by other methods are down two percent.


Reading the National Strategy for Preventing Veteran Suicide. Some of their statistics are putting some stereotypes to rest:

Among male veterans who die by suicide 68 percent die from firearm injury, approximately 17 percent die by suffocation, about 10 percent by poisoning (including intential overdose) and five percent by other methods.

Among female veterans, 41 percent die from firearm injury, 20 percent by suffocation, 32 percent by posioning and seven percent by other methods.

So much for the falsehood that a female would never use a firearm to kill herself.
