Mlitary.com honors and remembers the fallen.
The Phoenix VA Health Care System established its Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Alzheimer's Disease & Cognitive Disorders Clinic in 2014 in response to the growing need to treat Veterans' exhibiting TBI symptoms from their service in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. TBI Injuries often go unreported because brain injuries are difficult to diagnose if the military member does not lose consciousness and if there is no superficial evidence of a head wound. Also, doctors often tend to look for structural evidence of explicit brain injuries and fail to understand that TBI can have a chemical component as well.
