    Listening to Coast to Coast radio they were talking how a likely source of these suicides is drugs given to the military to treat traumatic stress disorder.

    Over 4,000 Utahns attempt suicide every year. Over 400 succeed. The problem is not isolated to the military. Most families have been touched by suicide. It's a tragedy no matter who dies. Soldiers deserve the best care possible, but so does anyone who needs help.

    Yes, I fully agree.

    We made them vets, we need to take care of them. Having served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, I have too many friends that have been forever changed by the horrors they saw, and getting help was almost impossible.

    Yes, yes, 1000x yes!

    EVERY Senator in DC should be clamoring to be this bill's co-sponsor. I wonder how Senator Hatch and Senator Lee feel about this issue. I have inquired of both of them and have not yet received a response.
