Report: Mass. Should Do More For Veterans' 'Hidden Wounds'

Massachusetts can, and should, do more for the mental health of its returning servicemen and women. That's the conclusion of a new report from the state Legislature's Joint Committee on Veterans & Federal Affairs.

In April, the state panel was formed to investigate what it calls the "hidden wounds of war."

State Senator Stephen Brewer co-chaired the committee, and talks to WBUR about its findings.
