A HEALTH centre to help traumatised military personnel could be established at Euroa as part of a Coalition push to help veterans.
Veterans Affairs Minister Darren Chester joined fellow National Mark Byatt, a candidate for Indi, on Monday to promise $50,000 for developing a support service for returned servicemen and women at Euroa.
"This project could lead to the establishment of a post-traumatic stress disorder wellness centre by using the currently vacant Amaroo and Euroaville facilities," Mr Chester said.
Liberal candidate for Indi Steve Martin on Monday hosted party colleague Senator Jim Molan, a former Army Major-General, in Wodonga and Rutherglen.
Pleased to support @lovestrathbogie with $50,000 as first step to developing Veterans Integrated Support Service in Euroa.

Senator Molan said a recent inquiry found linking RSLs and support networks, such as the Hume Veterans Information Centre, was needed to aid mental health.
