The home front looks to be even more dangerous than the front line! The government was barely ready to deal with the physical injuries of veterans, the mental malady is slipping through the cracks.

The majority of veterans that commit suicide share the same motives as the rest of the public. The overemphasis of them having served in the military is political.
