Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are considered the “invisible injury” of our men and women engaged in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Though the physical damage that results from a TBI is not always apparent, the manifestation of other side effects is quite obvious.

Some, having been previously law-abiding citizens, turn to criminal behavior upon their return.
