May 6, 2014

Working on post to implement research programs to help our psychologically wounded warriors, STRONG STAR staff at Fort Hood feel a special connection to troops stationed at "the Great Place" In fact, for Jamie Anderson, a STRONG STAR employee who also is a military spouse and a volunteer with 85th Medical Detachment's Family Readiness Group, Fort Hood Soldiers are literally family. So when tragic shootings occurred on post on April 2, 2014, Anderson eagerly responded to the call to organize activities in support of the shooting victims' families, and her STRONG STAR colleagues wanted to do anything they could to assist. STRONG STAR's funding agency within the Department of Defense, the Office of Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs, shares the story in this program highlight.
