Trump signs measure aimed at preventing veteran suicides

President Trump on Tuesday signed a new executive order aimed at decreasing the number of veteran suicides and creating a task force to raise awareness of the crisis. Currently, about 20 veterans die by suicide every day. The new task force created by the executive order will create a grant system which provides funding for housing to help veterans and their families.

Just a thought. Maybe the reason veteran suicides are soaring is because they aren't sacrificing themselves against some great threat or invading force. And the country they are sacrificing themselves for self inflicts far more damage than any of the people our soldiers have had to shoot at could have inflicted on the nation. Not to say they aren't threats nonetheless but modern war just doesn't have the sense of everything being at stake, which is what brings about the feeling of honor for those who fight.
