A new Massachusetts commission will study the mental health effects of military service and make recommendations about how the state can help returning veterans. The "Wounds of War" commission will look at whether the state should create a mandatory mental health treatment program for National Guard members who engage in combat. The commission will also look at the potential benefits of a military family leave policy for caregivers and a statewide education training program to assist police, corrections officers, and first responders about the early warning signs of post traumatic stress disorder. The report from the 19-member commission is due Sept. 15. (AP)
