A new study finds fewer veterans are taking their own lives.

FOX's Chris Foster reports:

20 vets a day committed suicide on average in 2014, according a new Department of Veterans Affairs study. It's based on a larger database than the previous study in 2010 finding 22 suicides a day, so, not an exact comparison.

The new data shows about 2/3's of veteran suicides are people 50 and over with the suicide rate for female vets twice that, of civilians.
