This Week at American Veteran

This week at American Veteran, we will continue to follow news out of Afghanistan of the captured American soldier being held by the Taliban. Over the weekend, a video of the soldier was released. We will post more details shortly.

We will also follow this week's hearings on Capitol Hill, including the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs' follow-up hearing on the Philadelphia VA brachytherapy issue.

Late last week, it came to the attention of AMVETS' leaders that the current health care reform bill may have unintended consequences for the veterans' community in its current form. AMVETS has drafted a letter to key legislators voicing these concerns. American Veteran Online will keep you up to date on the health care reform bill and its potential impacts on the military and veterans' communities.

As always, we are eager to see content from around the country for "Keeping Posted," and if you have any other ideas or thoughts that you would like to share with our editorial staff, please let us know.
