dc.description.abstractPublic information about the use of health care through the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) by veterans of the Iraq and Afghan wars (OIF/OEF) underscores the potential for overestimating the impact on the taxpayer. Pressing needs of newly discharged veterans require immediate attention, especially for PTSD, TBI, and physical disability services, but the demand for immediate post-deployment VHA services is overshadowed nationally by the demands of the aging Korean and Vietnam War cohorts in terms of the number of patients and the total cost of their care. In addition, the long-run care needs for aging OIF/OEF veterans will be significant.en_US
