Disabled American Veterans Charitable Services Trust Supports OIF/OEF Veterans Battling PTSD
Date:5/11/2010

Grant supports USA Cares Warrior Treatment Today program assisting veterans battling PTSD.

Cold Springs, KY (Vocus) May 11, 2010 -- Richard Marbes, Chairman of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Services Trust announced in a letter to Brett Manock, Director of Development for USA Cares, “I am pleased to advise that favorable consideration was given to the funding request for USA Cares Warrior Treatment Today program in the amount of $10,000.”

According to Manock, “This grant is especially timely in that May is Mental Health month and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a growing issue with returning service members. Just last month the National Academy of Sciences in a report to Congress concluded that PTSD, among others, is a major readjustment issue facing returning OIF/OEF veterans and their families.”1

Warrior Treatment Today is a USA Cares program designed to bridge the gap between personal financial demands and the veteran’s need to receive treatment. Specifically, the program seeks to remove the financial barrier that exists for many service members who suffer from PTSD and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI), but cannot afford to leave their employment for treatment. National Guard and Reserve members are particularly vulnerable to this barrier as they resume their civilian lives upon return from deployment. Should they be referred for treatment of a significant duration, they have to not only keep their jobs, but also acquire the dollars necessary to continue to meet their financial obligations. In just over a year, USA Cares has given almost $400,000 to veterans and their families in support of their residential treatment as part of the Warrior Treatment Today program.
