FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) _ A group of top Army officials is in Kansas to wrap up a national assessment of the physical and mental health of soldiers and their families.

The officers have spent the week touring Army posts in Georgia, North Carolina and Texas. They'll discuss their findings Friday afternoon at Fort Riley after reviewing services and facilities at the northeastern Kansas post.

The delegation is led by Gen. Lloyd Austin, the Army's vice chief of staff.

Programs reviewed by the team include suicide prevention, care of wounded soldiers, prevention of sexual assault and evaluation of disabilities.
