New figures show U.S. military suicides broke another all-time record last year. According to the Pentagon, 349 active-duty soldiers took their own lives in 2012, far exceeding the number of U.S. troops killed in battle. The previous record of 310 suicides within army ranks was set in 2009. The figures do not include veterans no longer enlisted in the military.
