Invisible Wounds of Combat Veterans in Iraq, Afghanistan

Hosted by

In the past eight years, 1.7 million American soldiers have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The RAND Corporation says more than 30% have come home with either Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or Traumatic Brain Injury. It also reports that only half receive “minimally adequate care.” Today, Mayor Villagraigosa and Public Council, the nation's largest pro bono law firm, announced the Center for Veterans Advancement to provide the legal help they need to get the benefits they're entitled to.
