This Week at the VA
Effective August 1, 2018, the
entitlement available under the Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational
Assistance (DEA) program will be reduced from 45 months to 36 months, but
in October, the monthly allowance for eligible recipients will increase.
Today, Norman Hooten is far-removed from
his days of battling opposing forces across the globe and has taken on a
new mission of tackling the opioid epidemic facing our nation’s Veterans.
He is a clinical pharmacist who just finished his residency with the West
Palm Beach VA Medical Center. After rotations in several clinical
areas at the medical center, Hooten discovered a passion for working with
Veterans recovering from substance use disorder.
