Veterans Re-Adjusting to Civilian Life

DN! examines concerns about the treatment needed by many of the 2.5 million U.S. soldiers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. "It takes as much time and energy for a young person to come back and then get into a different routine as it did to prepare them and train them to go to war," says Stephen Xenakis, a psychiatrist and retired brigadier general who has advised the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on military mental health issues. He is founder and president of the Center for Translational Medicine, which assists in testing and treatment of soldiers and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Xenakis was cited Sunday in the New York Times by columnist by Nicholas Kristof.
