Then we will have a panel. In addition to our students who have served, two experts from the VA will join us -- Dr. Marks, the chief psychologist at the VA, and Steve Cohen, who runs the VA housing program. We hope you can join us .. you will learn about troops, PTSD, VA programs, Tucson's Veteran Treatment Court and our own Veteran Clinic. And it's a way to show support.
