Recent Suicide of a US Soldier When Asked to be Deployed Once More

As the video explains, the suicide toll is far greater in percentage in regard to the US Army personell than in the general US public. What is the reason for this? Is it the trails of training that a US army officer has to endure? Or is it the memories of all the people they killed without actual cause? The soldier in the video believed he was going to hell. He maybe came to the realization that he had his hand in killing many people that were never meant to be killed. Only a few people can handle the realities of war with a clear mind.
