NBC NATIONAL NEWS — The Department of Veterans Affairs plans to hire nearly 1,600 mental health professionals.
The V.A. says they'll assist the growing number of soldiers returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The new hires will include psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers.
300 clerical support staff will also help reduce the backlog for service at many veterans medical facilities.
No word if any of those positions will be open in Louisiana.
