Women are the fastest growing segment of Veterans and VA is improving its care for them across the country. Women Veterans deserve the same respect and honor as their male counterparts and VA is working hard to deliver it to them.

Measuring success is much more than quantifiable and qualitative results. Depending on a person’s culture success could be defined with several different meanings. Business success may be determined by revenue, success on the battlefield is determined by victory. But, how does a person measure personal success?

Summer is winding down, but no need to put that grill away just yet! You can still find many seasonal fruits and vegetables at your local grocery store whose flavors flourish when prepared barbeque style. The VA dietitians created a twist to traditional kebabs by using fish. For the recipe, follow the link below. For more ideas and tips contact your local VA Registered Dietitian #VANutrition http://www.nutrition.va.gov/docs/UpdatedPatientEd/FishKebabs2.pdf
