Senate Armed Services Comittee OK's PTSD Funds

It looks as though the Defense Authorization Bill for Fiscal Year 2007 has been approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee as it moves for a vote. Please see the Lincoln Tribune for all the specifics. Here's a snippet:

The bill also includes $17 million for efforts to treat post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), and funds other mental health initiatives, including a pilot program started at Ft. Bragg to provide early diagnosis and treatment of PTSD. “It must be a priority to diagnose and treat service members and veterans who suffer from the psychological traumas of war and help them lead healthy, productive lives,” said Senator Dole. “This care is crucial in helping people through the demands of the on-going Global War on Terror.”
