Murray Asks For Timeline On Military PTSD Review.

The Hill (10/19, Cox) “Floor Action” blog reported that Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, chairwoman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, wants Defense Secretary Panetta “to move to the next step on a timeline for a military-wide review of PTSD and behavioral health diagnoses made since the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.” Panetta “promised to follow up” after some service members were told they didn’t have PTSD by a doctor “trying to keep expenses down” at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, but Murray “said…that the investigation seems to have stalled since being announced on June 13.”
