Resurface :- Watch Resurface on Fire on Youtube on Fire, Resurface is a documentary about military veterans who use surf therapy to cope with PTSD and transform their lives. It is the next documentary from the award-winning filmmaking team that made Slomo, a NY Times Op-Doc and winner of a dozen jury and audience awards, including SXSW, AFI Docs, and Sheffield Doc Festival.That said at several points in the short film there is the assertion that combat veterans commit suicide at higher rates. Facts: 1) Same age, income, education level civilian non veteran population commits suicide at the SAME rate their equivalent demographic cohort demographic combat veterans 2) Combat veterans commit suicide at lower rates than veterans who have never seen in combat. Counter intuitive? Maybe. But a dozen peer reviewed studies show this and non refute it. Why? Because during times of more military recruitment a larger number of candidates who have extremely poor employment chances, or borderline extant mental illness are inducted. Those people are usually detected and flagged, never serve in combat and encouraged to leave early while keeping a honorable discharge, but are still the “veteran” demographic. They constitute the entire elevation in rates. Studies in the Uk have shown the same thing. Also if you careful control for gender, education level, employment status, combat veterans commit less violent crime, less murder and less spousal abuse than identical demographic cohorts in the civilian population. As a combat veteran myself, I strongly support attention to the fact that non combat veterans, typically persons with 12 months or less of service commit suicide and other forms of violence because of circumstances and conditions that preceded their enlistment. But perpetuating stereotypes about combat veterans does a disservice to everyone. They do NOT harm themselves or others at rates higher than their same demographic non veteran population.
