The military has been seeking the causes of a spike in military suicides for the last several years so it can begin knocking it down.

John Nagl, of the Center for a New American Security, and I discuss this persistent challenge with Dr. Margaret Harrell, a CNAS military personnel expert who just co-wrote a study on the topic, and Dr. Elspeth “Cam” Ritchie, a Battleland contributor who recently retired as the Army’s top psychiatrist.
