Pittsburgh suicide brings to light issues tormenting female veterans
from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
A recent veteran suicide in the parking lot at the Pittsburgh Veterans Affairs' H.J. Heinz facility was tragic because she was a young woman who seemed to have much to look forward to. Former Army Staff Sgt. Michelle R. Langhorst, 31, served nine years in the Army, mostly as a member of the military police, before an honorable discharge in 2012. She had graduated from Point Park University last year and recently got a job as a security supervisor at UPMC Shadyside. But Langhorst's death stood out for two main reasons: she was female and she had been receiving behavioral health treatment at the VA for at least a couple of years.
