The Risk of Suicide in U.S. Soldiers
With the rise of suicide in the U.S., it is something that must be brought to attention quickly.
Specifically, the rise of suicide has increased from U.S. soldiers that are deployed with six months or less between rotations.
It is hard enough for a family to have little to no time to spend with their loved one who served as a veteran to the U.S. Army.
It is hard to imagine the pain and hardship of the lack of preparation and the amount of time we give veterans to spend at home or to recoup from their deployments.
Regarding the hardship, something that must be discussed is how long we should give our soldiers before we deploy them again?
It is a matter of life and death for the soldiers that serve our country to consider the pressures that are being put on them in such a short amount of time.
Families that have to cope with the early deployment of their loved ones also have to cope with the possibility that their loved on deployment might suffer from the stress and anxieties that come from not having time to bond or prepare psychologically.
It is human nature to bond and have relations with peers and families.
Being prepared for what may come in future deployments seems to be key amongst the psychology of soldiers.
They need time to adjust to the amount of time that they may be gone on deployment. They also need time to recoup the loss of time they have spent with their family.
The clause is a matter of preparing our loved ones for future back to back deployments by talking about their concerns and struggles.
To support the troops of the U.S., there needs to be a reconsideration of how much stress we are putting on the individuals that serve our country. If it is a matter of life and death, we must reconsider those individuals life when it comes to the risk of suicide. One life makes an immense difference in support of the troops.
To prevent the of suicide risk within the deployment of our soldiers something that must be considered is giving veterans time to recoup at home while also time to spend with their pack within the U.S. army before they are stationed or deployed in another country.
Suicide risk is a serious ordeal, and we can give soldiers time and preparation order for them to regain their strength to be able to deploy again without the risk of suicide.
It is a huge risk to keep sending U.S. soldiers back to deployment with the risk of suicide in the U.S.
Giving our soldiers time and preparation before deployment will make a significant difference for their health and suicide risk.
