Think about what you did in the past 24 hours.
Now consider that a United States soldier, or another member of the Army family, took his or her own life during that same time.
The Army announced that the number of suicides rose again in 2010 to almost one per day, reported Charley Keyes, CNN's senior national security producer.
Suicides doubled in the calendar year 2010 for the National Guard, while suicides among active-duty soldiers actually declined for the first time in six years, to 156. But suicides in the Army National Guard were up to 112, twice the number for 2009.
Overall, the number of suicides was 343, an increase of 69 over 2009. That includes self-inflicted deaths among active-duty soldiers, the National Guard, the Army Reserves, civilian employees of the Army, and family members, Keyes wrote.
The stories behind the numbers are complex, and there are myriad factors that might lend to the high numbers. It's not as simple as blaming the experience of war.
For example, more than 50% of the people in the National Guard who committed suicide had never been deployed, the acting director of the Guard, Maj. Gen. Raymond Carpenter, told CNN.
The news about suicide made headlines the same week the American Journal of Psychiatry released a study which found that soldiers who received extra mental health-screenings had lower rates of combat stress. The study focused on more than 10,000 soldiers from Fort Stewart, Georgia.
