NVLSP Sues Army for Denying Lifetime Benefits and Healthcare to Thousands of Vets with PTSD

In a class action lawsuit filed on 12/16/08 in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) charged that for many years, the U.S. Army has shortchanged an entire class of soldiers who returned from service in Iraq and Afghanistan with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from the benefits to which they are entitled.
