6/24/21 Ben Suitt on the Alarming Suicide Rate Among Post-9/11 War Vets

•, by Scott

This side of modern warfare often goes undiscussed, but it is every bit as concerning as the physical injuries that soldiers sustain overseas.

Discussed on the show:

"High Suicide Rates among United States Service Members and Veterans of the Post-9/11 Wars" (Cost of War Project)

"Poll: 42 percent of Americans think the US is winning the 'war on terror'" (Military Times)
Ben Suitt is the author of "Finding Resonance Amid Trauma: Moral Injury and the Role of Religion Among Christian Post-9/11 U.S. Veterans." A recent graduate of Boston University, Dr. Suitt's research investigates the role of religion in the lives of US military veterans as they navigate between competing identities and cultures amid the disruptive experiences of war and trauma.
