Suicide's toll: Survey says 1/2 of vets know someone who has tried it

The survey was conducted earlier this year by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. IAVA received responses to an extensive list of questions from more than 2,000 of the nation's younger veterans, the vast majority of whom served in the Army or Marine Corps. Respondents ranked suicide and mental health as the biggest issue facing post-9/11 veterans. Among some of the more troubling findings.
