In 2012, an estimated 6,500 former military personnel committed suicide. More veterans succumbed to suicide than were killed in Iraq: 177 active-duty soldiers committed suicide compared to 176 soldiers killed in combat. In 2012, the study concluded that Army had the highest number of suicides compared to any other service branch. In 2013, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010, which showed that roughly 22 veterans were committing suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes.
