A Losing Battle

"The Insidious Enemy" (More U.S. Soldiers Have Killed Themselves Than Have Died in the Afghan War. Why Can't the Army Win the War on Suicide?)

The common thread binding all branches of the military is the mantra that the individual is stronger, mentally and physically, than the problem. Weakness is not accepted or tolerated. Failure is not an option.

In such an uncompromising environment, it cannot be a surprise that when this immutable truth dissolves, many consider themselves unworthy of continued existence.
