US Army suicide rate to hit record high in 2012 (Suicides leave Panetta "Frustrated")

Earlier this month, the US Army reported a total of 26 suicides among its active-duty soldiers in July, which is more than twice the figure released for June.

According to US Defense Department statistics, as of June, the Pentagon had recorded 154 suicides across all the military services, a rate of about one suicide per day.

Last month, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta referred to the suicides as “one of the most frustrating problems” that he had come across in his role.
