The U.S. Army Medical Command has begun implementing a new first-in-the-nation medical pilot program for returning members of the 86th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, which includes most of the line-of-duty injuries among the 1,300 Vermont National Guard members who are returning from deployments in Afghanistan.


The Army has based this pilot program out of Fort Drum, New York, so the majority of Vermont soldiers will be nearer to home even while they remain in-patients or while they receive out-patient care in the WTU.

Local kid reporter focuses on Fort Polk
Kid reporter Tori Feaster, 12, likes to take advantage of any opportunity to write a story, she said. It's a good thing, because those opportunities are about to multiply for the Vernon Middle School sixth grader.
Feaster was recently tapped by Scholastic News to become a member of the Scholastic Kids Press Corps, a team of about 50 reporters, ages 10-14, who report on current events, breaking news, entertainment and sports events from their hometowns across the country. Feaster said the appointment was a dream come true.
