This is the December 4, 2019 hearing on "Servicemember, Family, and Veteran Suicides and Prevention Strategies," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Personnel of the Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Thom Tillis: "Suicide is a homefront threat to servicemembers and veterans. Tragically, rates of suicide for Active Duty servicemembers and veteran populations have increased in the latest reports, particularly affecting young men under 30, who make up nearly half the military. Veteran suicide is a national epidemic. As a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, working to reduce the number of veterans who die by suicide is one of my top priorities." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Karin A. Orvis, Michael J. Colston, Matthew A. Miller, Richard McKeon, and Ronald C. Kessler.
