An Oklahoma Senate committee approved a bill today to improve care for National Guard members suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.
The bill calls for caregiver training for people treating guardsmen with PTSD.
Senator Brian Crain sponsored the bill, and says full-time military employees have better access to treatment than members of the National Guard.
"It's very important," said David Cook, a veteran with PTSD. "Because it's very hard to explain unless you have it. You don't know when you're going to be set off."
Statistics from the Pentagon show that more veterans died from suicide last year than in combat.
