WASHINGTON — Declaring that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was "doing the right thing," VA officials announced an approximately $500,000 settlement Sept. 12 of a disability compensation claim dating back to 1961, which involved a 93-year-old World War II Veteran from New Mexico.

The case, Archuleta v. Wilkie (Docket No. 17-1404), filed in the U. S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, focused on a Women's Army Corps Veteran, Josephine T. Archuleta, who was denied entitlement for disability compensation tied to service connection for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from a claim she originally filed in 1961.

Basic Function: The Grant County Strengthening Families Program utilizes the award-winning Strengthening Families curriculum. Participating families learn how to improve communication skills, develop effective conflict resolution techniques, set goals and establish family meetings. The SFP Facilitator services include but are not limited to facilitating parent groups for parents and youth, follow up with parents to assure they are achieving group objectives, and conducting program evaluations.

Principal Responsibilities:
