Fort Campbell officials continue to take proactive measures in preventing suicides among troops and are hoping the efforts will pay off during the upcoming new year.
Post Suicide Prevention Coordinator, Joe Varney says one suicide is one too many and that there are many sources soldiers can turn to and seek help without any repercussions.
Varney says something as simple as talking to a person, who may or may not show signs of being depressed or being suicidal, may one day save a life and that no soldier should suffer alone.
The Department of Defense has not released information concerning the number of service members who took their lives this year and will likely be released in the near future.
According to a report previously released by the Department of Defense, in 2012, over 349 service members took their own lives across all four branches of the armed forces with the Army sustaining the highest toll at 182 deaths.
