I just saw this article and thought you should know.

Carbondale veteran awarded $3.7M in PTSD case

The Times-Tribune.com, 17 January 2013

“A federal judge on Wednesday awarded $3.7 million to an Iraq War veteran from Carbondale who sued the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs after his war-induced post-traumatic stress disorder worsened because the agency prescribed him the wrong medication and treated him over the telephone.”
