As U.S. combat-related deaths decrease, suicides among service members are increasing. U.S. military suicides have never been so high; 349 for 2012. It exceeded the Pentagon's own internal projection of 325. It exceeds the 311 Americans who died in war zones last year.The U.S. government began closely tracking suicides in 2001 through the Department of Defense Suicide Event Report.
