This is the first time in our Nation’s history when our returning veterans include women who have seen combat and are being treated in VA Facilities for Maternity Care.  Whether it is being coordinated through the VA with civilian Doctors as in most cases or handled as in patient. Most of the women or their spouses involved in the program are being assisted by VA Social Workers in one way or another to get back on their feet after dealing with the trauma of injuries or the mental stress of combat.

The Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center has established a program that says Thank You to the Veterans who are new parents and those waiting for the birth of their child. This program is called the Littlest Patriot Program It is a small way of saying Thank You to our younger veterans.
