After further research, I realized quickly that my question about death benefits and suicide is not military specific. It's an integral part of FAQs for many life insurance providers for the general population.

Havlik isn't some well-manicured leadership author. He's a rough-and-tumble guy who has actually led... often in do-or-die situations. He's got a bullet hole in his right forearm. Like I said, badass.

This spring, Sikh soldiers serving in the U.S. military marched in New York City at the annual Sikh Parade. The regiment offered an important introspective for Pentagon leadership, and an opportunity to sharpen its strategy against extremism with the power of American ideals.
