I AM A VETERAN/SERVICE MEMBER
Being a part of the military, means being a part of something bigger than yourself. However, everything you know can change in an instant as active duty and reserve service members are at increased risk for sustaining a TBI compared to their civilian peers. When you have a brain injury, due to a blast, fall, accident, or something else, it may be one or multiple concussions or fully losing consciousness for a period of time requiring medical evacuation. It can be challenging to figure out how to move forward, if that means being able to return to duty or living a life in a civilian world. At the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina we are here to serve you and support the care and recovery of service members, combat wounded troops, and veterans with brain injury.
