WENATCHEE, WA.-The Wenatchee Rotary Club got a head start on the Veteran’s Day holiday with a special program featuring a local retired US Navy Medical Corpsman. Lou Barrier is a veteran of Korea and Viet Nam who shared his experiences both during his 28 year military career and his continuing work today in helping combat veterans deal with post combat injuries. Few people have Barrier’s wide background as a combat medic with a rare insight into the drug, alcohol, and mental health challenges faced by our veterans. He tells NCWLIFE News that traumatic injuries are on the rise . . .

After retiring from the Navy Barrier earned his GED and then went on to college where he received a Masters Degree finally ending up in Wenatchee where he developed the drug and alcohol treatment course at Wenatchee Valley College.
