After A General’s Suicide, The Army’s Looking At Officer Health
By Sarah Sicard

A 2-star general committed suicide in July, prompting the Army to consider the health of its officer corps.

On July 31, 2016, Maj. Gen. John Rossi took his own life, just days before being pinned a third-star and taking over Army Space and Missile Command. His death made him the highest ranking soldier ever to commit suicide, and sent shockwaves through Army leadership.

As a result, Army Secretary Eric Fanning asked Lt. Gen. Edward Cardon, who recently led Army Cyber Command, to review the general officer corps’ health after 15 years of continuous war.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln
