Army says mental health among soldiers in Iraq has improved but morale still low

PENTAGON The Army says there are fewer suicides among its personnel in Iraq and Kuwait, but morale is still low.

The Army has released a mental health assessment based on interviews conducted last year. It finds mental health services for the troops have improved and there are more workers to help them handle combat stress. The report covered late last August through mid-October.

But, 54 percent of the soldiers say morale in their units is low, or very low. That's an improvement from a 72 percent a year earlier.

2. Who is asking the soldiers about morale?
Their CO's?

"How's your morale private?"

"Morale is just dandy SIR!"

Fewer suicides.. Probably because most of the suicidal soldiers have already committed suicide? It's just like the long term unemployed stats here in the homeland.
