"This is a historic time, we're really at a point, where we are supporting our warriors and loved ones recognizing that never in the history

of our republic has so much been borne on the shoulders of so few on behalf of so many for so long," said Army Brig. Gen. (Dr.) Loree K. Sutton, director of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury during a DoD Bloggers Roundtable yesterday. "Every possibly support, every possibly measure that we can take to help support warriors and their loved ones whether you are on the battlefront, whether you are on the home front or suffering from injuries seen or invisible that is what we are all about."

Brig. Gen. Sutton participated in a roundtable to announce the opening of a new 24-hour outreach center, which will be open 365 days a year and is staffed by behavioral health consultants and nurses. This center will provide service members, veterans and their families a new resource for psychological health problems and traumatic brain injuries.

The center can be reached by calling 866-966-1020 toll-free, or by sending an e-mail to

Joining us on the call were Carla Lois, and Bruce McQuain
