What Do You Think Is the Suicide Rate of Our Veterans Per Day?

Question by James: What do you think is the suicide rate of our veterans per day?
From the anti war . com website it is revealed it is 18 per day or 6,720 per year and so today we lost 12 to a killing spree while 18 others took their lives from PTSD, HOMELESSNESS and DRUG ABUSE due to the horrors of war. So, should we get out of war completely? Is this the answer we wanted for 911? Your thoughts?
