SOLDIER SUICIDES AND OUTCRIT JURISPRUDENCE: AN ANTI-SUBORDINATION ANALYSIS
CREIGHTON LAW REVIEW (2011)
  • Olympia Duhart
Abstract

Even if they survive the war, the soldiers who make it home are struggling to stay alive. Soldier suicides, which have reached staggering numbers since the onset of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, reflect the pervasive mental health issues that plague veterans. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder ("PTSD") rates have increased dramatically. Of the 30,000-plus suicides in the United States each year, 20%are acts by veterans. That translates to roughly eighteen veteran suicides each day.
