Milam Appointed to Veterans' Advisory Committee on Rehabilitation
By: GLENYS YOUNG
As the committee's only Vietnam veteran, Milam may be uniquely situated to offer insights about the current and future needs of veterans.
Ron Milam, executive director of the Texas Tech University Institute for Peace & Conflict (IPAC) and a Vietnam War veteran, will soon be using his expertise to benefit his fellow veterans.
U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert L. Wilkie recently appointed Milam to a three-year term on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) Veterans' Advisory Committee on Rehabilitation (VACOR), which provides advice to the secretary on the rehabilitation needs of disabled veterans and the administration of the VA's rehabilitation programs.
