Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Chiarelli says the effect of 10 Military, Pentagon, Suicidesyears of conflict in the Middle East will not be known for some time, but there have been a significant number of suicides in the last year alone, according to Politico. 

“We’ve been fighting for a decade and I don’t think we as a nation know the total effect of a decade of war,” Chiarelli said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And I think that’s what we’re seeing.”

Chiarelli said that the Army has seen 162 suicides in the last year out of a force of nearly 750,000, but refused to call it an epidemic.
