Vermont to Receive Funds for Vet Readjustment Program

From yesterday's Barre/Monteplier Times Argus:

"The Vermont office of the U.S. Veterans Affairs Department is getting an extra $1 million to continue building a network that helps service members and their families adjust to life after being deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.

The money is contained in the Defense Department budget, which has passed the U.S. House and is likely to pass the Senate, said Vermont independent Rep. Bernard Sanders, who introduced the legislation that led to the appropriation.

'The problem of post-traumatic stress disorder, and of difficulties in adjusting back to civilian life, is very, very real,' Sanders said Monday during a Burlington news conference. 'Social support is the number one predicator of successful readjustment, which means that working with families and communities is extremely important.'"
