For those trying to prevent military suicides, the wife of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has some advice.

Deborah Mullen says don't forget the spouses.

At a military suicide prevention conference, Deborah Mullen said army leaders told her they lack the ability to track suicide attempts by family members of army personnel.

Mullen says she was stunned when she was told there are too many to track. She urges the military to implement suicide prevention measures with spouses in mind.

The military has had an increase in suicide rates among all branches since the start of the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
