Defense & National Security — Navy faces mental health crisis after suicides

E-mail Print PDF
Navy suicidesThe Navy is investigating the suspected suicide deaths of four sailors all assigned to the same ship maintenance center in Virginia in the span of less than a month — a development that comes on the heels of an earlier spate of sailor suicides in April in the same state.

We’ll share the details of the investigation and the circumstances leading up to the suicides, plus the Pentagon’s consideration of expanding training of Ukrainian troops in Europe and the newest regional headquarters for the Space Force.

The most recently deceased of the four, Janelle Holder, was found dead on Nov. 26, according to Lt. Cmdr. Rochelle Rieger, a public affairs officer with MARMC.

The three other sailors, Kody Lee Decker, 22, of Virginia; Cameron Armstrong; and Deonte Autry, 22, of Monroe, N.C., died on Oct. 29, Nov. 5 and Nov. 14, respectively.
