Australian Vet Suicides

More Australian Defence Force veterans have killed themselves this YEAR than those who died in combat in Afghanistan due to post-traumatic stress disorders | Daily Mail Online: 
Former Army officer and co-founder of the Soldier On veterans support group John Bale warns as many as 50 veterans had killed themselves in 2016 - nine more than the 41 killed while serving during Australia's longest overseas combat deployment.
Mr Bale is set to address a senate inquiry into veteran care in Canberra on Friday after hundreds of submissions were lodged about former soldiers being forced to fight with the Department of Veteran Affairs for recognition and support.
