“With the sudden exit from Afghanistan, there are more expectations of soldier suicide than ever before,” Brian DiSabatino, representative of 22 in 22/Stop Soldier Suicide, said. “Since the exit from Kabul, Stop Soldier Suicide has seen its weekend call rate increase over 100%. We must act now to get our Veterans the help they so desperately need.”
