Mission 22 Fights Veteran Suicide with Massive Awareness Campaign
The number of soldiers who don't survive life as a civilian is a crisis of its own and a mission is underway that's working to change that
At the height of Operation: Enduring Freedom, U.S. forces lost 904 soldiers in combat fatalities in 2007. The highest number of casualties in Afghanistan in a single year was 499, in 2010.
Every day, 22 american combat veterans commit suicide as a result of untreated or improperly treated Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injuries. That’s 8,000 a year…more casualties annually than our armed services have seen on the battlefield since Korean war.
