(CNN)--. That's a suicide every 65 minutes. As shocking as the number is, it may actually be higher.
The figure, released by the Department of Veterans Affairs in February, is based on the agency's own data and numbers reported by 21 states from 1999 through 2011.
Now the government are cutting more benefits for Massachusetts Soldiers

We need to more for Veterans with PTSD

...and even those without PTSD.
Our elected officials get rich doing their jobs and most get great pensions...
Our military get a pittance for a salary and risk their lives for our country and get pretty much nothing for serving.
Kinda sad, dontcha think?

22 vets a day commit suicide and WHY must they wait up to a YEAR for treatment???? Obama needs to REMOVE the red tape and streamline WHATEVER the vets need! They put their lives on the line for us to have the FREEDOMS we enjoy every day!
