U.S. Must Step Up Response to Vets, Report Says
Date:3/26/2013

ependent, evidence-based advice, also concluded that:

  • The VA and defense departments need to complete work as soon as possible on combined electronic medical records systems that will make it easier for current and former service members to access services and smooth the transition from one department to the other.
  • Given the increase in the number of women in the military, the Department of Defense needs to boost its efforts to eliminate sexual harassment and assault. These problems, which affect a significant percentage of current and former female service members, can have long-term emotional and health consequences. One solution: Add criteria to commanding officers' performance reviews that assess how well they deal with sexual harassment and assault.
  • Department of Defense support programs should address the needs of a full range of families, including unmarried partners, same-sex couples, single parents and stepfamilies. Those programs typically have focused on married, heterosexual couples and their children.
  • As requested in 2010, the Veterans Health Administration should predict the amount and types of resources needed to meet the needs of veterans and their families in the next 30 years or more.
