    DIAMOND BAR, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- QTC Medical

 examinations to veterans living in Louisiana and New Mexico. The cities

 administer compensation and pension (C&P) disability exams on behalf of the
 Department of Veterans Affairs. In 2003, QTC was re-awarded the contract

 examinations for service members who are seeking benefits delivery at

 DoD's shared exams involve active duty members requiring both a BDD exam
 and a DoD separation exam.
