So there could be a predictive model - it boils down to if there is any desire and will to use it.

Again, I was talking about how this will likely shake out -- and in that regard, good luck getting a court decision based on predictive models.

What you would need are examples -- evidence that a higher suicide rate in the civilian population would somehow affect an individual's ability to serve.

Of course, we could see how it's panning out in other countries -- although there might not be many combat situations to look at -- but Americans tend not to do that regardless. Oh well.
