“CBS News first reported on the staggering number of veteran suicides in a report last year. Now, newly-released data shows that vets who get help from the VA are still at risk. Armen Keteyian reports.

(CBS) The “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” won an Emmy Award last night in the category of Outstanding Investigative Journalism in a Regularly Scheduled Newscast for a series of reports by Chief Investigative Correspondent Armen Keteyian that exposed how officials at the Department of Veterans Affairs tried to cover-up the true risk of suicide among veterans.

Investigative Producer Pia Malbran was responsible for the series along with Senior Producer for the investigative unit Keith Summa, Executive Producer for the CBS Evening News Rick Kaplan, assisted by associate producer Ariel Bashi and editors Craig Crawford, Matt Turek and Catherine Landers.”
