The U.S. Army is taking steps to improve the treatment of National Guard and reserve troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Concerns over their treatment have been raised over the last year by Oregon lawmakers, Senator Ron Wyden and Representative Kurt Schrader. Some of the changes include ensuring each solider receive proper medical care, and improving communication about the benefits they're eligible for.  Senator Wyden says he's been concerned that National Guard and reserve troops were being treated differently, either sending them home too quickly following demobilization and making sure they get the proper medical care following deployment.
