The VA's top health care official is asking Americans for help in addressing the crisis of veteran suicides. "I wish it was as simple as me saying I could do more patrols in a parking lot that would stop this," Dr. Richard Stone, the executive in charge of the Veterans Health Administration, said Wednesday of the department's efforts to curb veteran suicides and suicide attempts, which often occur at its own facilities. Stone made the remark in response to questions from the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee about three recent suicides: two in early March at Georgia VA facilities and one at an Austin, Texas, VA clinic.
