“Meet three soldiers and two Marines with traumatic brain injury, hear their stories and see how their recoveries are.”

The above link to the Washington Post includes highly comprehensive articles, videos and other resources on TBI.  Please go to the link and become more aware and educated on TBI, a complicated and often invisible wound to the brain. The lives of combat veterans are changed forever as a result of a severe brain injury or TBI.  In addition, TBI is even more complicated by the symptoms of PTSD.  Knowing more about this subject will help you recognize the symptoms and have compassion for combat veterans who struggle with inter personal communications challenges and the need to be treated as a typical person.  If you understand, you will not shy away from engaging in a more normal and compassionate way.
