The plan follows revelations that some soldiers diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) had that finding rejected during a subsequent army evaluation in Washington state.

Secretary of the Army John McHugh said the army must determine that its processes and procedures are fair, thorough, and meet appropriate medical standards.

Senator Patty Murray (D-Washington), chair of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, requested details of how the review will be conducted.

She pointed out inconsistencies in the Pentagon’s mental health education system that led to hundreds of servicemembers having a PTSD diagnosis restored after being accused of lying about symptoms.
