Thousands of troops and family members may not have access to the mental health care they need through their military or approved civilian health providers, a new Pentagon report says.

The Defense Department Inspector General found patients seeking outpatient mental health treatment often experienced delays or never obtained care at all due to inconsistencies in standards, inadequate staffing, outdated provider information and other shortcomings in the military’s health system. https://www.stripes.com/news/pentagon-watchdog-finds-military-mental-health-system-is-not-meeting-the-needs-of-troops-and-families-1.641299

      WASHINGTON — A federal judge revoked the pretrial release for a Navy reservist awaiting trial on charges stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot last week following his conviction in Virginia for possessing unregistered silencers. U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden ordered Hatchet Speed, of McLean, Virginia, back into custody on Friday after a jury in the Eastern District of Virginia convicted him earlier this month of possessing multiple silencers disguised to look like cleaning supplies.
