The White House says President Barack Obama and the national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars have discussed the shootings at Fort Hood and the challenges posed by veterans with emotional problems and post-traumatic stress.

Obama and VFW commander William A. Thien met at the White House on Monday. Topics included health care for veterans and the effect of budget cuts on the Veterans Affairs Department.

The White House said both men addressed mental health and suicide prevention for active soldiers and veterans.

Thien, in a statement, said the issue is, quote, "a national problem with no blanket solution."

Officials said Spc. Ivan Lopez killed three people before killing himself at Fort Hood. Lopez was undergoing treatment for depression and anxiety while being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder.
