WWAY NewsChannel 3, NC

U-S Senator Elizabeth Dole is calling on the federal Department of Veterans Affairs to report on its ability to handle the increasing number of veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.Dole’s office says a recent study indicates that combat duty in Iraq was associated with high utilization of mental health services and attrition from military service after deployment.


The North Carolina Republican says it must be a priority to diagnose and treat veterans who suffer from the psychological traumas of war and help them lead healthy, productive lives.


Dole joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers in writing to Veterans Affairs Secretary James Nicholson.
