General Loree Sutton MD visits Cowboy UP! Program

Brigadier General Loree K. Sutton, M.D. Director, who is the highest ranking psychiatrist in the U.S. Army, has served as director of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) since November 2007. She also serves as special assistant to the assistant secretary of defense for health affairs. We were honored to have her visit us and spend time here at the Crossed Arrows Ranch. Loree was excited about our program and the positive changes she witnessed first hand with our Cowboy UP! program participants. She will retire in November and we expect to see a lot more of her here at the ranch.
