There were 580 deaths by suicide among US service members in 2020 – a 16 percent increase as compared to 2019, when there had been 498 such cases, according to the Defense Department suicide report, cited in last September.

More US service members committed suicide in the third quarter (Q3) of 2021 than the total number of those who died from COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, according to the Defence Department.

Thus, released Pentagon data cited by Fox News showed that 163 service members took their own lives from July to September 2021, of which 70 were active service members, 56 - reserve members, and 37 were members of the National Guard.
While this reveals a drop in suicides among active members of the military as compared to Q2, suicides have risen among reserve and National Guard members.
