John Kerry was out and about in Boston today doing one of the things he does best, showing support for our Veterans (see my previous post). Tonight, Kerry and Max Cleland were among the attendees for a premier of NECN‘s made for TV documentary “Hidden Wounds” at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. The event included a viewing of the film and a discussion of the documentary about “three local veterans who return from Iraq with post traumatic stress disorder, and their struggles to overcome the affliction.”
Kerry, “a Vietnam veteran who has spent his career championing veterans’ issues“, was there to introduce the film and speak immediately following the screening, “along with Vietnam veteran and former Georgia Sen. Max Cleland, Vietnam veteran and Kerry Swift boat mate Del Sandusky, Major General George W. Keefe, Adjutant General of Massachusetts, Major General Kenneth R. Clark, Adjutant General of New Hampshire, and Timothy Beebe, Veterans Administration Northeast Director, Readjustment Counseling Services.”
There’s more on “Hidden Wounds” here, including air times on NECN.
UPDATE: From the Boston Globe – “Film brings ‘hidden wounds’ of Iraq war into public view“
