Suicide statistics rising in the American military

ABC reported that there were 18 cases of suicide in the month of February alone.

Although this number was less than the number of suicides in January, one official military figure stated that the statistics of suicide in the American army is high and worrisome.

At least 24 soldiers committed suicide in January.

The American military is researching the reasons behind these suicides. Out of the 143 cases which seemed like suicide in the previous year, 138 of them were confirmed suicides. The five other cases are still pending.
