US war veteran suicide rate explodes

There is are many silent screams in the U.S. war of terror. War veterans are increasingly suffering in silence and self-inflicting wounds. Little is known, many want to keep it hush-hush, but the truth about suicides among those who have served in the military is beginning to transpire.

I recently read on the Irish anti-war movement site that a five-month CBS News investigation has discovered data showing a startling rate of suicide amongst war vets in the U.S. 6,256 committed suicide in 2005 alone. That's about 120 people a week.

CBS Chief Investigative Reporter Armen Keteyian have done an extensive report on the issue.

“I just felt like this silent scream inside of me,” said Jessica Harrell, the sister of a soldier who took his own life.

"I opened up the door and there he was," recalled Mike Bowman, the father of an Army reservist.

"I saw the hose double looped around his neck,” said Kevin Lucey, another military father.

"He was gone,” said Mia Sagahon, whose soldier boyfriend committed suicide.

Keteyian spoke with the families of five former soldiers who each served in Iraq - only to die battling an enemy they could not conquer. Their loved ones are now speaking out in their names.

Ya lucky bastard - stay off the internet as much as possible. It's a killer;)

More from the report:

It found that veterans were more than twice as likely to commit suicide in 2005 than non-vets. (Veterans committed suicide at the rate of between 18.7 to 20.8 per 100,000, compared to other Americans, who did so at the rate of 8.9 per 100,000.)

One age group stood out. Veterans aged 20 through 24, those who have served during the war on terror. They had the highest suicide rate among all veterans, estimated between two and four times higher than civilians the same age. (The suicide rate for non-veterans is 8.3 per 100,000, while the rate for veterans was found to be between 22.9 and 31.9 per 100,000.)

Enhanced Abilities Seminar
learn how to use the rest of your mind

My father the late Richard Coleman was a master clinical hypnotherapist for 29 years of my 34 year life. As a seven time state champion wrestler, I've grown up using what professional athletes call the ZONE at will.

Obtaining a master clinical hypnotherapist certification at age 24, I currently work for Dr. Cunningham at Quailbrook Dental Care where I use hypnosis to NUMB people that can't have chemicals, fear removal or would rather just not feel the injection. In my private practice I specialize in pain removal,hypnosis anesthetics for childbirth, removal of all negative behaviors. Including trauma, grief and loss.
Enhance sports performance,focus, memory retention, personal awareness, worth and more.

I've taught this class locally to 25 hospice , 5 fire departments , countless sports teams, nurses and individuals.

Using this state of mind produces a profound state of relaxation and focus. Every negative behavior is a form of tension, including pain. Tension and relaxation can not occupy the same place at the same time. So you do whatever you do BETTER, feeling GOOD.

We have used this state of mind to great benefit in dentistry for many years. It's a state of mind, not a state of eyelids or looking asleep.

In short. I remove the emotional connection to things that hold no value. Creating a positive mental expectancy which (rule of the mind #2 ) tends to be realized.

In this two hour seminar you will learn

what is hypnosis - quick history
how it works
why it works
the 8 rules of the mind
proper semantics
quick induction pain removal techniques used in my dental office

Continued Success In your Life.
