Web. 20 Apr. 2010. <http://airforcemedicine.afms.mil/‌idc/‌groups/‌public/‌documents/‌afms/‌ctb_101843.pdf>. This website is a Air Force Suicide Prevention Program. This shows that the air force has put in an effort to prevent suicide among the people that have served for them.

This source has different content than the rest of my sources. This source is a video that discusses individual people. I think that this source has allowed me to step in the shoes of the family of a veteran that has killed herself or himself.
      Keteyian, Armen, and PiaMalbran. “’Shh!’…Suicide, secrets and veterans.” IRE Journal 31.6 (2008): 19-23. Academic Search Complete.

It is an investigative report on veteran suicide rates.

This video was different than many of my other sources. It gives informational statistics. These statistics will assist me with my presentation.
      - - -. “VA under scrutiny for veteran suicides.” ABC News. N.p., 3 Mar. 2008. Web. 19 Apr. 2010. <http://abclocal.go.com/‌kgo/‌story?section=news/‌local&id=5996940>. This article talks more about the future. I think that this article will help me with the outlook for this issue, and it will be very useful in my presentaion.
      Mount, Mike. “Army plans new training after record number of suicides.” CNN/‌ US. N.p., 29 Jan. 2009. Web. 20 Apr. 2010. <http://www.cnn.com/‌2009/‌US/‌01/‌29/‌army.suicide.prevention/>. This is a source that shows people what characteristics to look for in a suicidal veteran. It is a program that is enacted by the Army. I think that it is a beneficial video for people who have family in the war.
      Reinberg, Steven. “With Depression, Vets Face Higher Suicide Risk.” ABC News/‌ Health. HealthDayNews, 13 Jan. 2010. Web. 20 Apr. 2010. <http://abcnews.go.com/‌Health/‌Healthday/‌story?id=6629354&page=1>. This source discusses how depression relates to suicide. It states that veterans that are recieving clinical treatment are less likely to commit suicide. It goes into great detail about suicide with regards to depression.

This is my primary source. This article quoted several different experts, and their opinions have been very helpful to me. This source gave me the most useful information.
      Valenstein, Marcia. Personal interview. 2 May 2010. Dr. Valenstein aided me by giving me her personal opinion on different topics concerning veterans’ suicide.

This is an article that tells the story of a man, Dennis Barber. I think that it allows me to better understand individual veterans.
