  • I am a former AF ER medic, a clinical psychologist and adjunct faculty. For the past 4 years, I am conducting research on combat trauma. Four of my articles are published.
    My research dates back to WW TWO.

    The combat vets I have seen, present w/ multiple medical and psychosocial trauma. I see clinical depression, PTSD, substance abuse, and compacted grief. In terms of triage, these are urgent presentations and obviously the most urgent, given the high suicide rate of vets.

    Only 6 of the 20 suicides a day are seen at a VAC? Ealry and continuous engagement is vital. Rich
