Speaking of premature & preventable deaths, have you seen the interview with Angelina Jolie about her work with U.N. refugee camps, & the extremely high stats for infant mortality (both newborns & children) in those places? Very tragic deaths, since many of the sickness or contributing factors are easily preventable.

I'm moved when I hear those kind of enormous stats, & God bless whoever makes it a mission to help them, but the stats of deaths/suicides by exmembers, particularly SGs, strikes home even harder because of our past affiliation with the cult.

Btw, I'm a little surprised that in the 'small-town' stats you cite, that the teens knew of NO suicides. Was that a typical sampling or random?
