    Boy am I glad I am leaving this place.

    We had another death. Rumor has it, it was an Amn in SF who shot himself at the gate. I know one of the civilian contractors working at the same gate where it happened. Crazy thing was that I went through that gate maybe 5 minutes before he offed himself.

    I think it would be hard to compare to a civilian population.
    What is the standard for high suicide rate?
    Are cops in the military more likely to kill themselves than cops in the civilian sector? who knows...

    They say statistically that suicide rates are lower in the military - just more high profile

    I was in on a thread a while back where I did a lot of searches to find studies that have been done on this. Essentially they all found what you just said.

    But I'm not going to do all that work again. :o

    Both.

    Statistically speaking, 1% of the total U.S. population is serving in the military.
