More on brain damage and Iraq conflict

The epidemic of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the brain damage caused to military personnel comes from a British television report and exclusive footage from within the U.S. army traumatic brain rehabilitation facility in Palo Alto, California.

With 16,000 American soldiers wounded in Iraq, this news report suggests that as many as 7,000 have become victims of brain trauma with only 800 of them treated at specialized army brain injury rehabilitation facilities.

The footage contained in this news report is quite distressing. The report is useful for its in depth look at the life long consequences of brain damage caused from a traumatic brain injury or a traumatic head injury.  You can view the full program by clicking here and then downloading the video.

Senator Martinez, Senator Frist, President Bush, take a look, hopefully this will convince you that funds must be restored in the Federal Budget for traumatic brain injury rehabilitation.
