The Seattle Times Opinion: On this Veterans Day, where is the outrage over mental-health crisis?
While the national news media, political pundits and our political leaders fixate on such gripping scandals as NFL players protesting during the national anthem and President Donald Trump’s alleged bumbled interaction with a Gold Star family, 20 veterans die from suicide every day, as the tragedy of the current military mental-health crisis impacting millions of Americans has completely fallen off the national radar.

KUOW Radio (NPR): 911 call on salmon farm: ‘The whole thing is buckling’
