Source Alert: USC Experts on Iraq War, 10 Years Later

Veterans and Social Services

Eugenia Weiss is an expert on PTSD and military families at the USC School of Social Work, which offers a unique Masters of Social Work degree with a concentration in Military Social Work. She can discuss how sequestration cuts to social services will affect veterans, the ripple effects that can impact families, and how little preparation for returning veterans was done before the Iraq invasion. She is fluent in Spanish.

“The war doesn’t end when service members get home. The Veterans Administration is a complex system to navigate and it takes some injured veterans years to get the appropriate care, benefits and resources. Many are disenchanted with the US government or VA, so they seek out services in community agencies that are not equipped with the expertise needed to be able to help these folks.”
