The number of suicides in the Air Force are becoming an increasing concern for Secretary James Roche.

The Air Force usually sees lower suicide rates than other branches of the military. But 10 Airmen killed themselves last month alone which is similar to the rate of other branches.

Roche has ordered every command in the Air Force to make sure suicide prevention programs are in place and operating.
