Washington -- Congress is moving ahead with plans to spend $370 million on military programs in our region. About $2 million would go to Phoebe Putney Hospital to create a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder unit to serve war veterans and their families.

Medical workers say they hope to incorporate more technology into the program. "We've advanced much further beyond the plain telephone system to where were now using video cameras and television screens with audio and video that would allow the doctor to connect with the patient," said Judy Payne, LCSW, Behavorial Health, Phoebe Putney.

About 300 million dollars would go to Ft. Benning and $66 million to the Marine Corps Logistics Base, though much of that money would go to the MCLB facility in Jacksonville, Florida.

Today the House Appropriations Committee approved the plan. Next week the full House is expected to approve it.
