Veterans lined both sides of the entrance to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salem today. They say, over the past five or six years, funding and staffing cuts have left only a skeleton crew to run the 6-week P-T-S-D program. They add the reductions have cut the number of patients the program can accept, even though the services will be more in demand as vets return from Iraq.

THE DRAWINGS WERE DONE WHEN WAS HE IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT IN THIS CELL...MORE SPACE THAN IS CUSTOMARY BECAUSE HE WAS A JUVENILE. HE HAS SINCE BEEN MOVED TO A REGULAR CELL.
IN A LETTER TO ANOTHER INMATE, MALVO ALLEGEDLY SUGGESTED THAT A DEPUTY BE KILLED. DUE TO HIS BEHAVIOR, MALVO IS SPENDING TWENTY FIVE DAYS IN DISCIPLINARY SEGREGATION. THAT MEANS NO TELEVISION, NO PHONE AND NO MATTRESS FOR SIXTEEN HOURS A DAY. ))
