Every day more veterans return home.  Yesterday the Amarillo VA and local health professionals met to discuss mental health issues in regards to those returning veterans.

Post traumatic stress is a common problem with returning veterans.  Local officials want to ensure issues are addressed in a timely fashion.  Currently the Amarillo VA is in compliance with rules requiring a new patient to see a specialist within 14 days of a referral.

Nationally the news is not nearly as good with many veterans waiting months for care.
