It is difficult to return home from an intensive combat environment. It takes a lot of understanding and patience on the home front as our troops adjust back to their previous lives. It is even tougher for those who sustained a TBI during their combat tour. Family and close friends of troops returning from combat should understand and watch for TBI and traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms. Diagnosis and treatment of TBI should occur as soon as possible after the injury. Find more information about PTSD at www.ncptsd.va.gov.
