The en bloc amendment from Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) would increase funding for suicide prevention outreach to veterans, reduce wait times for mental health services, and increase funding for research into prosthetics. The amendment was quickly approved in a voice vote.

A new study finds that the cancer care provided by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) for men 65 years and older is at least as good as, and by some measures better than, Medicare-funded fee-for-service care obtained through the private sector. The study, reported in the June 7 issue of Annals of Internal Medicine, was led by Nancy Keating, an associate professor of health care policy at Harvard Medical School.

(Washington, DC) Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) this week introduced the bipartisan Chiropractic Care Available to All Veterans Act of 2011, a bill to improve health care for veterans by expanding access to chiropractic care at Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities nationwide. Blumenthal was joined by original cosponsors Senators Jerry Moran (R-KS), Tom Harkin (D-IA), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), and Chuck Grassley (R-IA).

Homeless vets work on historic structures and their own lives

Quote:
When Trent Miller started to work on the 120-year-old barn, it was a termite's paradise.

Much of the Queen Anne structure was rotted, the roof shingles were worn down and the paint was so faded, it was impossible to figure out its former colors.

But Miller is learning as he hammers away that even something terribly beaten down can be rebuilt.

He and the four other men on his crew were recruited to work at Heritage Square Museum in a new program whose goal is to get homeless veterans' lives back on track.

The hope is that they will work not only on the buildings but on themselves as well.

Like the barn, the men have seen better days — before the alcoholism, the drug addictions, the post-war insomnia.
