Abstract

The signature injury of the military action in Iraq is a condition called Traumatic Brain Injury. This condition is caused by blasts and shock-waves that damage soldiers' brains. In an attempt to educate people about this critical issue, a website (www.soldierstbi.org) has been created that supplies necessary Traumatic Brain Injury information to the general public, including patients and their families. The information includes an overview and explanation of causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, funding and additional resources.
