Survey: U.S. Military Servicemen are Now Four Times More Likely to Die From Suicide Than in Combat
A stunning new survey has shown that U.S. military servicemen are now four times more likely to die from suicide than in combat.
The study was conducted by the Watson Institute at Brown University and it found that 7,057 U.S. military servicemen have died in foreign wars since the war on terror began on Sept. 11, 2001. Over the same period, 30,177 military servicemen have died from taking their own lives after being forgotten and discarded by a deep state that sees them as little more than pawns on a chess board.
“The report notes that the increasing rates of suicide for both veterans and active duty personnel are outpacing those of the general population – an alarming shift, as suicide rates among service members have historically been lower than suicide rates among the general population,” the study authors wrote.
The authors attribute this shockingly high number to “risks inherent to fighting in any war such as high exposure to trauma, stress, military culture and training, continued access to guns, and the difficulty of reintegrating into civilian life” as well as “a huge increase in exposure to improvised explosive devices (IEDs), an attendant rise in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and modern medical advances that have allowed service members to survive these and other physical traumas and return to the frontlines in multiple deployments.”
“Additionally, the sheer length of the war has kept service members in the fight longer, providing more opportunities for traumatic exposure, and fueling a growing disapproval and ignorance among the public that has only enhanced veterans’ difficulty finding belonging and self-worth as they reintegrate in society,” they wrote.

Even though the situation continues to worsen, the anti-war movement has faded away in recent years with very few even paying lip service to the concerns of the troops anymore. They are instead rooting on the military-industrial complex and its wars of conquest because the military is now promoting Black Lives Matter and trannyism abroad.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on the woke military under President-imposed Joe Biden and how they are promoting social justice platitudes rather than national security interests these days:
“U.S. Marine Corps Master Gunnery Sergeant Scott H. Stalker issued a rebuttal on Thursday to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who uttered the heresy that putting pregnant women into combat situations might not make America stronger.
Stalker, a veteran military-industrial complex operative who has gained power and prestige from fighting in deep state conflicts throughout the years, called out Carlson for questioning the golden calf of tolerance.
“Drama TV! Ladies and gentlemen, that’s what I call it. I’ll apologize up front and tell you that I don’t have cable news at home. I don’t have it here at the office and I don’t watch a lot of drama TV,” said Stalker, who has been rewarded for his fealty to defense contractors with the post of Command Senior Enlisted Leader of United States Space Command.
“I understand some comments were made yesterday, and I watched the clip that Mr. Carlson produced as he referred to pregnant women in the military. I’ll remind everyone that his opinion, which he has a right to, is based off of zero days in the armed services,” he added.
The officer bragged about his decades of serving the military-industrial complex, occupying parts of the world for no good reason, to impose the new American values of feminism and transgender kids upon third-world nations.
“Those decisions were made by medical professionals, by commanders in our civilian leadership, that allows for women to have more time with their children to recuperate, to get fit and ready, to take that time that is necessary that our medical professionals know is needed which actually makes us a more lethal and ready and fit force, ready to fight the wars of today and the wars of tomorrow,” Stalker said.
Keep in mind, these are the same “medical professionals” and “commanders in our civilian leadership” who have allowed for taxpayer-funded genital mutilation within the armed forces.
The officer’s final statement echoed the typical platitudes used by the globalists to wrap their hegemonic policies in a flowery veneer.
“We value women in our armed forces. We value those that have served in the past and we value those that have served today. We value our families in the military,” he said.”
The troops will keep dying, and Democrats will keep cheering because they have surrendered their souls and become everything they hate. President Trump’s America First GOP is the only peace party in America now.
