Active Duty Suicide Rate

It's 48% higher than the general population.  I would imagine much of this has to do with the poverty draft.
Of those who committed suicide in 2013, 64.9 percent had been deployed to either Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), or Operation New Dawn (OND). 54.1 percent of those who committed suicide had been deployed to Afghanistan, 50.9 percent to Kuwait and 39 percent to Iraq.
Now, at Apple's Foxconn factories in China, the suicide rate is 1/10th the general population.  Hmmm... better to promote jobs than war?  I wonder.
