We took to the streets again and bring you more of the live sounds of people in motion, this time as we covered the Veterans Day Parade and found out what groups like #OutNow cooked up to meet and greet the parades featured speaker Donald Trump. And, wel talked with those veterans in particular who protested the spectacle of war as they maintained that veterans that had deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, those in the youngest cohort, i.e. those most likely to have seen combat, have suicide rates, 4-10 times higher than their civilian peers. Said one marine who contacted Building Bridges to cover their protest, the answer to this question of veteran suicide is simply that there is a clear link between combat and suicide. This link has been confirmed over and over again in peer reviewed research. In a 2015 meta-analysis by the University of Utah National Center for Veteran Studies, researchers found 21 of 22 previously conducted peer reviewed studies investigating the link between combat and suicide confirmed a clear relationship between the two. The reality is that deaths by suicide often kill veterans at a level greater than combat, while the primary reason for these deaths lie in the immoral and ghastly nature of war itself."
