Shaw Air Force Base career assistance advisors: Senior Master Sgt. Eloise N. Ballew and Master Sgt. Jermaine S. Smith
The career assistance advisor position was created in an effort to increase retention rates. CAAs provide supervisors with the necessary tools to conduct career counseling with their first and second-term enlisted members. We are a resource for the commander, first sergeant, and most importantly, immediate supervisors.

Combat Stress in OIF/OEF VETS
Dorn VA Researchers are conducting a study of new treatments**for OIF/OEF vets who have problems with stress, anxiety, disturbed sleep, nightmares, etc.
The 5-week study is simple and involves no drugs. Participation will include psychiatric interviews and questionnaires. Eligible participants will receive $600 for completing the study.
There are many treatments for combat veterans who have these problems. However, these treatments may not reduce all of the symptoms. Other treatments might help.
For more info contact Shawn Youngstedt, PhD of the WJB Dorn VA Medical Center at 803-777-7296 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
