US Army To Down Tools Tomorrow And Focus On Suicide Prevention

I noticed via Twitter that the US Army has announced that it will set aside normal business tomorrow, operations permitting, and deal with suicide awareness and prevention.

That is a pretty huge deal for the largest service in the US military to suspend normal duties for a day, and an indication of how seriously they are taking the issue. I visited the US DOD website today and you can see from this page that the Army is putting a lot of resources into this problem, which seems to be getting worse. One day can't turn the problem around, but I hope it helps.
