Rising trend of veteran suicides at VA facilities

Capitol Review

According to AMVETS, the deaths appear to be in protest of a system they say is failing to properly treat veterans. The group is now calling for a multi-agency investigation into the ongoing veteran suicide crisis.

While the VA struggles, lawmakers continue searching for ways to give veterans a reason to live, including new alternative options such as “agro-therapy.”
