Do Guardspersons and Reservists have any special needs that must be considered as part of your suicide prevention program?
As a Commander, would you permit your unit to be used as subjects in research into suicide prevention? Why or why not?
Are increasing suicide rates a part of the “unraveling” of the Army spoken of by Gen. (Ret.) Barry McCaffrey? Why or why not?
Do you believe that suicide prevention is not as important in an organization based on a Warrior ethos? Why or why not?
As a leader, do you feel you have a moral, ethical, or legal obligation to your Soldiers and, by extension, to the safety of your Soldiers? Why or why not?
