Professionals caring for vets with PTSD can be in danger but have few protections

Hosted by

Former Army infantryman Albert Wong killed three caregivers at a veterans home in Yountville, CA on Friday. He was treated there for PTSD, and was kicked out two weeks before returning with a rifle. He was reportedly kicked out of the residential program after threatening someone there. Wong’s brother told reporters that he wanted to get back at staff.
