Veteran Suicides and PTSD

JustA11en starts by saying, “In the interest of full disclosure, this video will not be entertaining…” That may be true, but you should watch it to the very end anyway. JustA11en is a veteran and a self-described “veritable cornucopia of useless, non applicable, knowledge.” In this particular case, his intensity belies any flipness. His knowledge is neither useless nor nonapplicable; it’s important and directly relevant to the election. (Thanks, Sarolta Cump.)

If you want to “do something,” you’ll find a lot more information in the info box next to the video. A quick footnote on his numbers: when he says the military makes up about 11% of the US population, he presumably means that veterans make up roughly 11% of the population. (Active-duty military is less than 1% of the population.) Otherwise his figures agree with reliable sources.
