Last Friday, 18 October, the country lost a strong champion of Service members, Veterans and their families when Congressman Charles William “Bill” Young (R, FL) passed away at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Through nearly 21 terms as a Representative of the people of Florida, C.W. “Bill” Young was a passionate advocate of the needs and welfare of Service members and Veterans.
The odds -- according to a study in the September issue of the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center's Medical Surveillance Monthly Report -- of servicewomen with a diagnosis of postpartum depression (PPD) also being diagnosed with suicidality, compared to servicewomen without a PPD diagnosis. Among military dependent spouses with a PPD diagnosis, the odds are 14.5, compared to spouses without PPD.
