“For the second year in a row,  more American soldiers—both enlisted men and women and  veterans—committed suicide than were killed in the wars in Iraq and  Afghanistan.”

This has happened in every US war starting with Vietnam.

According to my recollection of a news report, the return to civilian life was difficult after previous wars (I doubt there is good data on suicide rates especially during the wars). Car accidents, potentially real accidents or suicides, increased after both WWI and WWII.
