Sgt. Major of the Army’s Suicide Prevention Message

Suicide continues to devastate the United States Army and our society as a whole. Recent measures and programs have been implemented to help prevent such a loss. Just a few days ago I posted a video featuring a soldier who stood by his friend, and stopped him from committing such a terrible act. As a leader, a co-worker, a family member or a friend, it is up to you help prevent suicide. This is the Sgt. Major of the Army’s message.

If you know of someone who is acting out of the ordinary, and seems as though they need help, contact the Veteran’s Crisis Line. It is available 24/7 for those wanting to prevent suicide and those who are thinking of committing suicide.

    My son supposedly committed suicide, he was based out of JBER. The wife called me to tell a bunch of lies. If she had let the CAO do his job, we wouldn’t see her as a murderer. The friends didn’t call your hotline or the police. I cry a lot, wondering what really happened to my son. I saw pictures of the wife and another friend having a good time on the roof of a car and her living it up in Vegas. It all seems like a set up, she’s with the best friend and I have no idea how long that bs was going on. And life goes on for a family that has been ripped apart. I hope no one else has to live like we do, or a hotline may be needed.
