Why Jump Off a Building When You Can Enlist?

I don't understand why people jump off buildings to kill themselves. It just seems like a horrible way to die. I'm not talking about the falling or even the landing but rather the senseless damage that will undoubtedly be done upon landing. Seeing as how most tall buildings are in urban areas that have some degree of pedestrian traffic, chances are pretty good that an innocent bystandard may be injured. Best case scenario still has the body landing on something else and still causing expensive damange.

Why don't people who want to die just enlist to serve in the military? Serving in the military might give some distraught people a feeling of purpose in life and a reason to live. The worst case scenario is that they die in combat and are no worse off than if they had committed suicide.

Just a thought....
