The pervasive increase in incidences of military suicide in the US over a couple of years in the recent past has been termed nothing short of a national disaster and a serious concern facing the nation (Mastroianni & Scott, 2011). Clearly, the heartbreaking trend of military suicides has shocked the nation to great lengths, yet concrete underlying explanations for the issue have largely remained elusive with policy makers struggling with plausible explanations of the issue. Between 2009 and 2011, the number of young veterans committing suicide rose drastically and remained unchanged over the whole period of three years; shockingly, nearly 22 veterans committed suicide on a daily period over the three-year period, according to the Veteran Affairs Department estimates. The suicide rate among older veterans decreased slightly while that of male veterans less than 30 years of age increased by nearly 44% and this has been attributed to the pressures of transiting from military service to ordinary civilian life, as well as the accompanying post-traumatic stress disorders. In the same 3-year period of 2009-2011, suicide levels among the young female veterans saw an 11% increase; an overall examination of the data reveals that suicide rates among veterans remain significantly higher than that of civilians in the general populations. In the year 2012 alone, the number of military suicides reported in the US military rose to a shocking 349, a figure that is actually higher than the 295 Americans who lost their lives in the Afghanistan combat in the same year (Mastroianni & Scott 2011). Back in the year 2011, when the numbers of military suicides gradually started rising, 301 suicide cases were recorded; most of the suicide cases, about 182 in 2012, represents soldiers who were on active duty. he issue of military suicide has been conceptualized as a complex one and the young veterans, mostly between 18-24 years of age, have been found to be highly susceptible to suicide particularly because they fear asking for help thinking it might undermine their careers.
