The War Horse is determined to document Post-9/11 suicides, both among active duty service members and veterans. In order to collect the most accurate information we need your help identifying verifiable suicides and locating supporting documentation, including but not limited to: police reports, Medical Examiner reports, copies of suicide notes, and more.
Why Is This Needed?
Veteran suicide statistics are often very broad. World War II veterans are in a drastically different life stage than OIF/OEF, Korean War, Vietnam War, and other era veterans. Our data collection will provide focused data aggregation that we will publish Open Source for government officials, nonprofits, and citizens alike.
How You Can Help:
The War Horse is collecting demographic information about verifiable suicides such as name, age at death, place of death, military service data, family contact information, and more. By filling out our confidential form you are helping us identify Post-9/11 suicides and the untold stories from war.
How Your Submission Will Be Used:
The War Horse respects your privacy and will ALWAYS ask your permission before attribution. We do not share your personal data with any third parties. The War Horse, upon verification of submitted data, will publish aggregate data similarly to The Migrant Files — including data visualizations and infographics — and comparable to Vox's Shooting Deaths project — both data and dossier-style profiles.
