Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)



The soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan have
survived more blast (IED, RPG, VBIED, Mortars, etc) attacks than those who have served
in any other war.  Experts have estimated that as high as one-third of all Iraq and
Afghanistan Veterans have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury.  That's more than 660,000
people!!

In a normal "civilian" setting TBI would be diagnosed within hours of an injury.  Our guys
and gals are often going months or years before being properly diagnosed.

However, getting a proper
TBI diagnosis is extremely important for many reasons - both for
short term treatment and for long term screening of illnesses that Traumatic Brain Injury
can cause or worsen later in life.

If you are a Veteran of OIF or OEF, or the loved one of a Veteran, please take time to read
through this TBI section and identify whether or not you may need to be screened for
Traumatic Brain Injury!
