Most likley it was like this during other wars OldVet it's just that now the military is putting a face to it and making sure every soldier is aware of it.Unfortunatley all the awarness training that has been going on for the last few years hasn't lowerd the suicide rate.I actually was responsible for giving the suicide awarness/prevention class at the last unit i belonged to before i retired,it's not a good feeling knowing it didn't help much.

Having gone through the Air Force version of the training, I wouldn't say is useless or in any way not helpful. Fortunately I haven't had to use the training with any friends or co-workers, but I'm confident that the training would help me identify someone who is at-risk and get them with a medical professional. Now, what happens after that is on the individual's leadership, and its really tough for them to get it right 100% of the time.

This may just be me, but I feel like parts of the message conflict. They want to make it seem like it's ok to ask for help, and does not make you weak, but then as soon as you identify yourself, they want to take away your guns? Won't knowing that they will take away your guns further scare people away from coming forward and make them feel like they will be marked or labeled?
It feels like a bait and switch deal to me.

There is a certain "diplomacy" that needs to be deployed when communicating with health care providers so that your
problem gets noted and tended to, but you don't stigmatize yourself.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
