Four out of five military suicides are committed by service members who have never been in combat, and data suggest that reservists and guardsmen have higher suicide rates than active-duty troops. Some researchers believe reservist suicides are undercounted because local coroners don't always document military service. "The Reserve does not get the same kind of data as the active Army," said James Griffith, a researcher and former guardsman.
