In my post Brain Injury: Signature Wound of the War in Iraq, I discussed IEDs and brain injury as being the wound that many GIs were coming home with, and I encouraged our support — over the long haul — of these disabled troops. There is more at the two links below. I must confess that I read these pieces under some emotional distress. These boys have made a sacrifice that will be with them the balance of their lives. But read these stories you must. Don’t turn away from them. Even if you know the drill, read the stories anyway. You will be a better person for knowing the struggles that the families of these young boys endure.
