In the wake of the tragic suicide of actor Robin Williams, Bill Whittle reminds us that suicide is rampant among members of our armed forces.

Whittle goes out of his way to emphasize that he means no disrespect to the memory of Robin Williams or his family but the number of military suicides is staggering.

These are men and women who risked their lives for our country and freedoms, yet many of them suffer alone in silence and if they take their own lives, they don’t get memorialized or even mentioned in national media.

Bill also makes a point of letting people know how they can help support service members who need it. He reminds us all that these men and women are our responsibility and we owe them.

This is a truly moving edition of Afterburner. Spread it around.
