The 8008 number is for total suicides committed by all veterans, you then cite numbers for "active duty" as well as reservists, thus you are mixing apples and oranges.
Before you comment on "fact checking" you should have your facts in order.
Look Michael, I’m not getting into a pissing contest with you. I simply quoted numbers supplied by the CNN article sent to me on the 2nd of Feb. You apparently are using an article published by Reddit. I quoted accurately and even clarified that further so no, I’m not mixing “apples and oranges”. If you cannot see that the Army is using the same numbers I did (325 suicides in 2012), then perhaps you might need to re-read the Army release or google the CNN article.
I came up with the 8008 number by multiplying the original posters’ comment and question (22 X 364). I don’t know what he read in the article or what was told to him. As far as I know, no one has mentioned the 8008 number other than me and I used it to show the original poster his understanding was incorrect.
