Full-time Vet Center counselor approved

Dr. Steven Lieberman, Acting Veterans Affairs Health Undersecretary, briefed me on the VA’s plans to assign a full-time Vet Center counselor to the Marianas. Currently Guam Vet Center staff periodically visit our islands to meet veterans. 

My legislation signed into law last October mandated VA to report on its plans to provide these services in the Marianas. This position has been a long time coming; but Marianas veterans will have a counselor right here at home to help them and their families readjust to civilian life and provide mental health services. Thank you, Dr. Lieberman.
