Yet in the New York Times, this was ignored by the majority of the country.

The report said that the 99 confirmed suicides by active-duty soldiers compared with 87 in 2005 and that it was the highest raw number since 102 suicides were reported in 1991, the year of the Persian Gulf War.
Investigations are pending on two other deaths.
Officials reported 948 suicide attempts, but there were no comparisons for previous years.

It was also ignored what the VA said about suicides in their system of 1,000 per year and another 5,000 out of their system per year. This means that although there were 99 confirmed suicides in active military and another two suspected, another 948 attempts, another 1,000 veterans succeeded along with 5,000 more, they only ones the media latched hold of were the 99.

Lesson learned: Movie stars attempt suicide and world pays attention. Our troops and veterans attempt suicide and no one cares. Maybe it's because they think the military are willing to risk their lives anyway so it's no big deal, but a movie star has so much to live for it really is a shame.
