60 Minutes: Clay Hunt Suicide & Chinese Real Estate Bubble

On 60 Minutes March 3 2013, the broadcast will include a look at the Clay Hunt suicide and a military epidemic.

Clay Hunt, a Marine veteran, is just one of many Americans returning from combat with injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder. After endeavoring to help others in his situation, Hunt eventually took his own life. At home and overseas, depression and suicide are growing problems in America’s military.

In 2012, more active duty service members died by suicide than in combat. Back home, lack of resources has led to high unemployment among those returning from service, and the wounds of war are taking their toll on people who may not know where to turn for support.


On 60 Minutes, Byron Pitts will explore The Life and Death of Clay Hunt.

    The big focus is on recent suicides by ex military, but if you check, you will find just as many problems in GI’s who served during the cold war. I served 8 years during the cold war, but the VA does not even recognize us, we don’t exist. When I returned to civilian life I could not find employment because I was former military. I finally began to lie on my resume , saying I was unemployed for 8 yrs. I was then offered several jobs. I can’t even join the American legion or the VFW. Cold war solders do not qualify.
