The cost of war to servicemen and women once they return home is about to be assessed, with the Minister for Veteran Affairs, Alan Griffin, announcing an inquiry into veteran suicides.

The inquiry will look at several recent cases of veteran suicides, to determine what contributing factors, if any, could have been prevented.
