Air Force saw record-breaking number of suicides in 2019

The US Air Force has confirmed that 137 airmen across the active duty, Guard and Reserve, died by suicide in 2019. This is the highest number of recorded suicides in three decades. While the Air Force did not break down the 137 number, leaked slides last week showed that the majority of the 2019 deaths were in the active-duty ranks (84).

If anyone in your family is one of the above, make sure you give them support---they are doing the hard work.
