Virginia Heroes, Marlboro Marine, Vet Unemployment, DoD Study

Notable quick stops well worth a visit:

  • On Wednesday, 200 social service workers gathered at the Virginia is for Heroes regional conference held at Fort Monroe. A few helpful articles over there, especially "Tune In to Special Needs of Military Families [pdf] ," by Barbara J. Howard, M.D.

  • Jenny Eliscu offers a heart-tugging update on James Blake Miller, 'The Marlboro Marine,' in the latest Rolling Stone.

  • Following-up on yesterday's post, the Topeka Capital-Journal editorial board chimes in on news that unemployment in the younger veterans set had shot up to 23 percent in 2005 from 2000's 10 percent rate.

  • From last week: A University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio research consortium has been awarded $33 million from the DoD to study post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in returning troops. Their main objective will be to "develop and evaluate the most effective early-interventions for detecting, preventing and treating combat-related PTSD."
