According to the 2018 Department of Defense Suicide Event Report, suicide is the second leading cause of death in the military. Let's Talk is an awareness series that shares the stories of those who have survived suicide attempts, dealt with suicidal thoughts, or have lost friends or family to suicide. We hope this series encourages someone to seek help.
