Official: Navy SEAL died of apparent suicide
By KIMBERLY DOZIER
AP Intelligence Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. military officials are investigating the apparent suicide of a Navy SEAL commander in Afghanistan.

A U.S. military official says SEAL Team Four member Cdr. Job W. Price, 42, of Pottstown, Pa., died Saturday of a non-combat-related injury that the official says "appears to be the result of suicide."

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the death is still being investigated.

Troops from SEAL Team 4, which is based in Virginia Beach, Va., are part of the mission to train Afghan local police to stave off the Taliban in remote parts of Afghanistan.

5. The Navy Always Says Suicide First Because They're Too Lazy to Do Proper Investigations

His family should take this announcement with a grain of salt until they see corroborating evidence that preponderantly agrees with this conclusion. It may be true, but the Navy has a tendency to look for easy answers rather than trying to find the truth.

6. No lazier than civilian law enforcement agencies....

....who ALWAYS make the closest family member their chief suspect no matter what the evidence tells them.

10. An estimated 58,168 American service men and women died in Vietnam.

It's also estimated that between 50,000 and 100,000 Vietnam vets committed suicide after their return in the years from 1968 to 1989. I'm so very, very afraid for our troops and angrier than I can say about the evil people that sent them into unjust wars.
