Oh, like it's easy to tell when a person walks in the door to recognize him/her as a likely suicide down the road. And BTW suicide is a big problem throughout our society, in and out of the military. I CAN tell you that supervisors in all branches of the military services are trained to look for and identify people who show any signs that might indicate a problem. And it's true that many vets who have left the military do have mental issues including but not limited to suicides. Too bad the VA (a Single Payer System) sucks so bad at helping them. You think that's the military's fault, or is it some other organizations? It ain't like going to war is a walk in the park, never has been.
