Resources for the Rearguard

We are collecting resources for those dealing with combat trauma of any kind. Many of these have been referenced elsewhere in the Six Man site. Below you will find articles that are particularly applicable to the situations you, the Six Man, will run into.


These books by Dr. Thomas Joiner can be found in our Recommended Resources page.

  • Myths About Suicide, 2011.
  • Why People Die By Suicide, 2007
  • The Interpersonal Theory of Suicide, 2009
