Research reveals the high rate of Traumatic Brain Injury and blast-related concussion events resulting from current combat operations directly impacts the health of the individual service member and the individuals associated with them.   This paper presents an understanding of Traumatic Brain Injury, will review the known causes and effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury, and will expose how this issue directly affects the author.
