Chiarelli, Army vice chief of staff, discussed the findings of the report, Generating Health and Discipline in the Force, Ahead of the Strategic Reset, at a Pentagon news conference yesterday. The three-year study outlines the problem of suicide in the Army and related issues of substance abuse, spouse abuse and child abuse.
