Retired U.S. Marine Gunnery Sgt. Jose Sanchez talks about why Marines find it difficult to talk about their mental and emotional issues after combat, the problems Reservists like himself sometimes face getting help, and why it's important both service members and their families get help.
Dr. Harold Kudler, the Mental Health Coordinator for the VA's Veterans Integrated Service Network #6, talks about Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, a growing problem among troops wounded in combat.
Dr. Kudler pays tribute to U.S. Navy Cmdr. Charles Keith Springle, a co-creator of the "Painting a Moving Train" program who was killed in Baghdad on May 11, 2009.
