MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama troops returning from Iraq and
Afghanistan will now get a booklet to help them deal with post-war
stress and readjusting to family life.

Gov. Bob Riley unveiled the 63-age Reintegration Action Plan on
Thursday. The booklet will be given to all returning troops from
Alabama. It includes information to help service members make a
successful transition.

A Pentagon task force last year reported that nearly half of all
Army National Guard soldiers who served in Iraq or Afghanistan
reported psychological problems when they came home.

Riley said the new booklet will help troops better understand
the readjustment process, and it recommends places to get help.
