BOSTON (AP) -- A new program launched with the help of the Boston Red Sox is helping veterans combat what experts call the "invisible wounds of war."
The Home Base program treats veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars for post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries and provides counseling for veterans' family members. In 2009, Massachusetts General Hospital and the Red Sox's charitable foundation partnered with other agencies to launch the program.
Former Army Sgt. Robert Doyle credits the program with helping turn his life around. He was broke, living in his car and suffering with the memory of a 2007 blast that severed limbs of fellow soldiers when he sought help at Home Base.
He now has a place to live and is enrolled in an entrepreneurial program for veterans.
