Postwar casualties: Female military veterans are suffering
from Daily Democrat
The casualty reports crossed Army Spc. Victoria Lampton's desk on a daily basis, but the grim reality of her tour in Afghanistan didn't grip her until death papers for one of her closest friends landed in her inbox. The trauma of that loss in 2006 and throughout her Army service built up for years until Lampton nearly became a different kind of casualty that the U.S. military is only beginning to understand: Female veterans are committing suicide at alarming rates.
