The doors are locked not to keep you in, but to keep bad influences out. 
Unique approach to rehab. At the Topeka VA, a new voluntary alcohol and drug rehab program called “Fresh Start” requires patients to commit to 30 days of intense therapy in a locked unit.

#TBI isn’t just something you can walk off. Take it from a Navy SEAL. 
Going without a helmet, having a track hatch fall on your head, or taking a fall during training are common ways a Servicemember sustains a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), however, most of these events are never reported. “Shake it off” we tell ourselves. “Take a knee and drink some water. Get back in the game. Keep moving.” The day-to-day living of a Servicemember or Veteran is far more likely to result in a TBI than from an incident during combat...

Today is World Poetry Day and we can’t think of anything more worthy to write poetry about than the bravery and honor of our Veterans and service members. Here is a classic by Ralph Waldo Emerson that does just that.

On this day in 2003 President George W. Bush announced the launch of Operation Iraqi Freedom, eventually toppling the country’s dictator Saddam Hussein. As those who served in OIF and OEF have come home VA strives to care for them. If you served during this time make sure you know your benefits and how to get them. http://www.oefoif.va.gov/

The greatest commendation our nation can confer is the Medal of Honor and today we need your help to honor those who have received it. This National Medal of Honor day reminds us what those who have distinguished themselves "conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity" mean to this country.

In 1943 the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) paved the way for USAF female pilots, flying virtually every type of aircraft from light trainers to heavy four engine bombers. More than 25,000 women applied for pilot training under the WASP program and of these only 1,830 were accepted. Gen. Henry H. Arnold, speaking before the last WASP graduating class stated, “You … have shown that you can fly wingtip to wingtip with your brothers. If ever there was a doubt in anyone’s mind that women could become skilled pilots, the WASPs dispelled that doubt.” But their contribution went largely unrecognized for years, not even being acknowledged with Veteran status until 1977. In 2009 President Obama signed into law S. 614, a bill awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to the WASPs. #WomensHistoryMonth
