Follow me on:

A top Army general said Friday that the military remains focused on meeting the physical and mental health needs of soldiers and families, including providing additional behavioral health programs, according to an Army Times story.

After touring Fort Riley in northeast Kansas, Gen. Lloyd Austin said leaders were focused on putting services and support structures in place to build resiliency in a force that has been at war for more than a decade. Austin and other top Army officials have spent the week touring Army posts in Georgia, North Carolina and Texas to review programs that include suicide prevention, care of wounded soldiers, prevention of sexual assault and evaluation of disabilities.
