National PTSD Center opens at VA in White River Jct

first_imgThe new headquarters building of the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder was officially opened today on the campus of the VA Medical Center at White River Junction. Vermont Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the facility, which they say acknowledges the extent of PTSD and the the federal government’s commitment to helping veterans.The senators noted that the new Headquarters Building is the hub of what has become an extensive VA-wide PTSD research and education network — parallel to the direct care that veterans receive in VA medical facilities — which acts on the nation’s long-term commitment to look after those who have served once they return home.“I can’t say enough about the work done by the men and women of the National Center for PTSD,” said Leahy, who, as a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, has championed investments in the Center to address PTSD cases among troops returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.  “We used to think of PTSD as something faced only by Vietnam veterans.  So many of our troops coming home today also suffer from PTSD.  It is more important than ever for us to look after those who have done and given so much for their fellow citizens and who now suffer from the invisible wounds of war.”Sanders, a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, said, “At a time when studies tell us that over 300,000 or nearly one out of every five service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan report symptoms of PTSD or major depression, expanding and improving the nation’s leader in PTSD research is the least we can do. We must do everything we can to make sure our brave men and women in uniform receive the care they need when they return from war.”During their remarks at the Center, Leahy and Sanders renewed their commitment to supporting the Center in both the VA authorization and appropriations processes.Sanders worked closely with the chairman of the veterans committee, Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii), to bolster the budget for the White River Junction facility.  On January 24, 2008, they sent a letter to then-VA Sec. James Peake regarding the Center’s increased workload and relatively flat budget in recent years.  Sanders also met with the VA secretary personally to raise the issue again, along with other health care-related concerns. Over several years Leahy has requested and received millions of dollars in budget increases for the National Center at White River Junction.  In two of the past four years he secured language encouraging the VA to lift the Center’s budget to match its broad responsibilities.  At Leahy’s prompting the VA in 2009 was encouraged to increase the Center’s budget by $2 million.  Leahy is pressing in this year’s VA appropriations bill to further sharpen VA’s focus on the needs of PTSD-stricken combat veterans.Leahy said, “It has always been a source of purpose and pride to participate in the work of this Center.  Senator Sanders and I will continue to work with others in the Senate to make sure the Center is the priority, within VA, and within Congress, that it needs to be.”The VA established the National Center for PTSD in response to a 1984 congressional mandate (PL98-528) to address the needs of veterans with military-related PTSD.  The National Center’s mission is to enhance medical research and education on PTSD.  Convinced that no single VA site could adequately serve this unique mission, VA established the Center as a consortium of five divisions.  The Center currently consists of seven VA academic centers of excellence across the United States, with headquarters in White River Junction.  Other divisions are located in Boston, Mass.; West Haven, Conn.; Palo Alto, Calif.; and Honolulu, Hawaii. Source: Leahy and Sanders. 10.12.2010# # # # #last_img read more

Going Home Again

first_imgA steep mountain road Brings a Runner Back to His Roots“You OK, son?”It’s mid-October of 2003—one of those crystal-clear fall afternoons that never seems to end—and an older man in a sedan has pulled up beside me on Georgia Highway 180 Spur. The two-lane blacktop snakes its way up Brasstown Bald, the highest point in the state, and I’ve decided to try running the three miles from its base at Jack’s Gap all the way to the thimble-shaped observation tower at the summit.“Oh, yeah. I’m fine. I just—” I wheeze as he interrupts me, asking if I need a ride. I’m hardly a mile up the highway, and he’s worried. Things aren’t going well.That run up Brasstown 15 years ago was the first of many I’d take while I attended college just a few miles down the road. In fact, those trips became a near-weekly occurrence: aim the car north, find a rock station broadcasting out of Atlanta, and wind my way on mostly empty state highways into the cluster of high mountains the next county over.And then there was the run itself. The climb up Brasstown is a beast, ascending at grades approaching 20 percent—a road steep enough to give pro cyclists fits during the Tour de Georgia in the early 2000s. Running to the summit just felt like you’d accomplished something badass, even in the age before a selfie was needed to make an outdoor trip complete.Looking back, I’m not sure why my runs up Brasstown became a thing. Maybe it was an escape from studying, or maybe it was a chance to get my mind off of stumbling my way into adulthood. Maybe it wasn’t even the running at all but the chance to get out alone in the mountains for awhile. One of my friends says that you never feel more alive than when you’re driving a little too fast down a southern backroad with the windows down and the radio blaring. He’s not wrong.Even though I and everything else around it had changed, the mountain—and the struggle of climbing it—was the same. And when it comes to why we get outdoors in the first place, isn’t that the point?Regardless of the reason, that feeling didn’t last. I eventually started a career and moved from visiting the mountains once a week to living in them, albeit a few hours north in Virginia. And over time, driving into the mountains quit being so special. It’s a feeling that all of us who live in the Blue Ridge risk. Our favorite parks and trails can become all too familiar, and the hills that once seemed so striking on our horizon can become just another part of the landscape. Today, I’ll often catch myself grumbling through traffic on my way to the trailhead after work to squeeze in an evening run.I never really thought about that change until this past winter, when a work trip put me back in Georgia and not too far from Brasstown. I ended up with a free afternoon, so I pointed the car north again and headed for the mountains just like I’d done years earlier. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. The world seems angrier now, my understanding of it a bit wearier, and my body an undisclosed amount of weight heavier than when I made that first run up the mountain as a teenager. As I drove into the hills, I fumbled around for that old rock station but ended up finding someone shouting over political talk radio instead.I wish I could report that my return to Brasstown went well, but it didn’t. I started out from Jack’s Gap too fast, forgot my pacing, and blew up midway through a particularly steep grunt where the road angles right up the nose of the ridge. I walked, cussed, and trotted at intervals from there.At the top, though, I remembered why I made those runs so many years ago. In 15 years’ time, not much was different on the summit. The Brasstown Wilderness still cloaked the ridges surrounding the lookout, while the Blue Ridge gradually faded to the Piedmont to my south. Lake Chatuge glittered in the valley below. Even though I and everything else around it had changed, the mountain—and the struggle of climbing it—was the same. And when it comes to why we get outdoors in the first place, isn’t that the point?Maybe I’m just turning this essay into a therapy session, but maybe that’s also one of the many things the mountains can be. A few weeks after my trip to Georgia, I was sitting through an especially dull workday when that run up Brasstown came to mind. I snuck out of the office early, but this time I headed for the highest summit in the county instead of the park where I do my usual evening run. I left the car in a pull-out at the base of the mountain and began climbing an approach road that led to a lookout tower a couple of thousand feet higher up. It wasn’t Brasstown, but it was close enough.This run didn’t go any better, but as I eased around a sharp curve, an engine revved behind me. A pickup crept up the road, and a concerned voice called out from the driver’s seat.“You alright?”For a moment, it didn’t matter what mountain I was on. Everything clicked into place, and a goofy smile flashed across my face. “Oh, yeah,” I yelled back. “Everything’s fine.”last_img read more

Miller gets 1st-team reps at center for Syracuse at open practice, Trudo lines up at right guard

first_img Published on April 8, 2014 at 9:16 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 For years at Syracuse, there was never a question of who the starting center would be. Macky MacPherson held the position down as a three-year starter and started all 38 games during those seasons.This spring was the first time that there would inevitably have to be change. Rob Trudo, a guard for the past two seasons, began the spring as the No. 1 center on the depth chart, but at the Orange’s first open practice on Tuesday, Trudo primarily lined up at right guard with John Miller getting first-team reps at center.“To be honest with you, John Miller could kind of be the most improved player this spring right now,” head coach Scott Shafer said, “and I really like the way he looked the last two practices.”Although Trudo has some experience at center, Shafer likes his physicality at guard and playing Miller at center allows Trudo to contribute there.“I love his aggression,” quarterback Terrel Hunt said. “Whenever he gets mad, I feel bad for the guy in front of him.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs Miller thrusts himself into the middle of the competition at center, it at least gives SU some depth at a previously questionable position.With Kyle Knapp’s career over because of concussions, there is an opening on the offensive line. Trudo, Sean Hickey, Nick Robinson and Ivan Foy will all likely start, but Miller could allow those four to play the same positions they played last year instead of shuffling.And if not, he’ll at least be there to provide some relief in the case of injury or exhaustion and some competition at a position that needs it.“We have some viable options,” Shafer said, “and I’m really interested to watch this tape because I was pleased with the way Miller played in practice the other day.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

But it was also the kind of game that the Crusaders couldn’t get off the field fast enough.After taking a 27-0, Rose Hill would make a furious comeback in the second half, scoring three touchdowns and almost getting a fourth. Wellington survived with a gutsy touchdown drive very late in the game.Some of the boys after the game seemed gassed. The injuries that has so decimated this team like no other appeared to be catching up on the Crusaders late. This could also be Colin Reichenberger’s last hurrah as the school’s record breaking receiver. He played with a bandaged hand, an injury he incurred in practice when he smashed his finger against another teammate’s helmet earlier this week. He is to go into surgery on Tuesday. Friday night he played defense and made about three tackles.Adam Condit, who has been nursing a sore ankle, came down with the stomach flu on Friday. All told, Wellington had four starters gone and some on the sidelines not at full strength.“When you are a coach you learn that nothing surprises you,” Wellington head football coach Tyler Ryan said. “But this has been a tough week for sure.”Still Wellington opened the game as if nothing could stop them. The Crusaders would score on their first three possessions with a dominating performance. On their first possession that started at the Rose Hill 47, the Crusaders would take off on a seven-play touchdown drive that took up slightly more than five minutes that was capped by a Lane Beard touchdown.Rose Hill would then turn the ball over on the ensuing kickoff and Wellington promptly scored on a Trevor Nance 1 yard touchdown run. Wellington had barely got its uniforms dirty and it was already 14-0.Then using a fake punt throw to Remington Gilkey, who had a sensational night coming in for Reichenberger caught a 30 yard reception on fourth down. Eventually, the two would connect again on an 18 yard touchdown throw. Wellington was cruising leading 20-0.The Crusaders would add another touchdown right before the half.In the third quarter, Wellington received the ball first and appeared to be marching back up field when it found itself in a fourth-and-1 situation. Beard plunged forward but the mark was just an inch short. Rose Hill caught a break and took full advantage implementing a more aggressive passing and running game.The Rockets got on the board on a 15 yard touchdown pass from Bonar to Nolan. Then on the next possession, Rose Hill intercepted the ball and started in enemy territory. The defense would hold but a fumble on Wellington’s next possession gave Rose Hill new life again.This time the Rockets would convert and score a second touchdown to make it 27-14.Wellington’s offense would mobil downfield and would attempt its first field goal of the season. The ball sailed wide barely. But time was running out on the Rockets still trailing by two touchdowns after they were forced to punt. A personal foul would thwart the next Wellington drive. Nance kicked a great punt and pinned the Rockets at the 3.But Rose Hill wouldn’t wilt, going on a 97 yard jaunt that included crisp passes for lengthy gains. Bonar would then score on 4-yard touchdown keeper to pull within six with 3:30 to play.The Crusader Nation was sweating. Wellington was third-and-6,when a beautiful Nance-to-Phelps pass to the flat kept the drive alive and was taking valuable time off the clock.Again, Wellington found itself in a third and six with 1:19 to play. This time Nance rolled to his left, dumped the pass to Gilkey who took off and nearly broke it all the way to the 9.At that point, all Wellington had to do is kneel the ball down to get the victory. But in the Kansas district playoff system, points are a premium. Wellington decided to use flanker Phelps on a run and he found a seam. He was going into the end zone when the ball squirted loose. Somehow, Phelps recovered and it was a touchdown.It could have easily been a touchback for Rose Hill giving the Rockets new life.That wouldn’t have been good, because the Rockets were easily moving through the Crusader defense. Down by two touchdowns with 40 seconds left to play, Rose Hill drove the length of the field hoping to gain back six extra points. The Crusaders would persevere with a Nance interception as time expired. Wellington would win by 12.Elsewhere, Ulysses would beat Mulvane at home 36-29. It appears Wellington has a lot left to do before it can wrap up its first playoff berth in four years.
