Why Do So Many Veterans Want to Commit Suicide?

This recent story on All Things Considered (“VA Struggles To Unlock The Reasons Behind High Suicide Rates Among Older Veterans”) got me thinking. If veterans are such great people, role models, heroes, brave, etc., etc., etc., who are almost worshiped by many Americans, honored, held in high esteem, continually thanked for their service, etc., etc., etc., then why do so many of them want to kill themselves?
