Great Falls Tribune: Tester tours new veterans counseling center

U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., on Friday toured the veterans counseling center he helped place in Great Falls, and liked what he saw.

He visited with a dozen or so veterans in the office that opened Oct. 24 at 615 2nd Ave. S.

Veteran Roger Flatt said he was at the center for his regular counseling session.

“We vets can use all the help we can get,” he said.

Army veteran Bert Dowell showed Tester and his veterans’ liaison a big stack of paperwork extending back to the Vietnam War. He said he is trying to get more help for post traumatic stress disorder.

“It’s helped to come to this center for counseling, and to talk to other veterans who’ve gone through the same problems,” he said later.
