Recently, three US Navy Sailors aboard the USS George H. W. Bush aircraft carrier on the coast of Virginia have committed suicide in different incidents.
That’s why right now the authorities are doing an investigation with what happened.
However, the Navy stated that this is not the first case of suicide. In fact, five US Navy Sailors also committed suicide on the same ship in the past two years.
But there’s no definite answer yet by the Navy on why these incidents are happening.
Certainly, suicide is one of the worst effects of depression. This may be the reason why these sailors are taking their lives.
Just as one of the wives of the sailors said that her husband has depression and he was afraid to tell anyone because he might lose his job.
After a few months, she thought that her husband has overcome it but apparently, she’s wrong.
Surprisingly, these cases of suicide are not just happening in US Navy sailors but throughout the US military.
In fact, three hundred and twenty of active-duty members have committed suicide in 2018, which is the highest number of cases up to date.
These incidents just prove that depression can affect everyone even our soldiers.
That’s why if you or someone you know have symptoms of depression, please don’t hesitate to talk to someone.
Moreover, you can call the helpline of your country to seek help from someone that cares for you.
Remember, you are not alone in this battle because there are people who love and are concerned with you.
