One half million soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan wars suffer brain injuries. In a recent Nicholas Kristof article in the New York Times, he discusses the case of a soldier that inexplicetely ran down an elderly woman, after the soldier suffered two brain injuries in service. The soldier is now charged with murder, and the family of the crime victim now suffers terribly. No one knows, but if Sqt. Smith had received timely mental health counseling and treatment, this tragedy may have been averted. See the link for the New York Times article.
