A new grant may help researchers at the University of Kentucky understand the effects of military suicides a little better.

The goal of the study will be to see how the deaths affect family and friends.

A leader of the study told the Lexington Herald Leader that it will last two year and use almost $700,000 in grant money.

Researchers say this could be one of the first times a study like this has happened.

They will do phone interviews with veterans and non-veterans and more than 100 Kentucky families.
