Military Suicides
Veterans and jobsActive duty US troops are killing themselves at a rate of almost one per day — that’s 50 percent higher than the combat death toll in Afghanistan. What is driving these men and women to self-destruction, and what can be done about it? We speak with a writer from the Associated Press who has delved into this issue. Then, we’ll talk to Boston Globe columnist Juliette Kayyem and a war widow, who discusses the signs she saw in the lead-up to her husband’s suicide and how war can change a man.

Guests:
  Robert Burns, Associated Press Washington national security correspondent
  Kim Ruocco, director of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors' suicide prevention program
  Juliette Kayyem, Boston Globe columnist, lecturer at the Kennedy School of Government and former assistant secretary at the US Department of Homeland Security
