Thanks A Million

How can a grateful nation thank our brave soldiers and their families for their sacrifice?

What does a grateful nation do when those who answer the call of freedom return home with a traumatic brain injury?

USA TODAY reported in November 2007 that at least 20,000 U.S. service members returning from combat have been diagnosed with, or shown signs of, brain injury.  The Brain Institute of America reported in 2008 “Veterans with TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) have remarked with anguish, it is impossible for one to attain a prosthetic device to replace his or her brain.  Anyone who has sustained a significant brain injury can tell you that one’s mind and life is never the same after such an injury.”

For some soldiers a brain injury is a condition for life.

There is a growing awareness among our nation’s leaders of a medical crisis. “There is clearly a problem when the most common injury of the war is the least understood,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.
Brain Rehabilitation And Injury Network has a plan to care for our wounded warriors who suffer from T.B.I.  With your help a state of the art facility will be built that will provide the healing atmosphere, professional assistance and residential care that our injured soldiers deserve.
