ENGLEWOOD — Rob Liput, Veterans Community Liaison for Vitas Healthcare, recently spoke at the Northmont Rotary Club about services for US Veterans.
He reviewed how war and its consequences are changing, largely in response to how wars are waged now when compared with previous wars. One of the more common issues that veterans face today is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Liput discussed how this and other conditions can be recognized and what services are available for veterans.
A war veteran, Liput served in Operation Desert Shield in response to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990 and in Operation Desert Storm launched in January 1991. His current service status is as an active reserve as a lieutenant colonel as logistics branch officer for the transportation corps. He has served in the military since 1985.
He serves with the Dayton-based US Army Reserve Command (USARC)/88th Regional Readiness Command.
The Northmont Rotary Club meets at noon each Tuesday at Good Samaritan North Health Center, 9000 N. Main St., Englewood.
