Honor our Troops With Concussions
I’m sure you’ve heard about the Iranian missile attack. To debrief, Iran attacked a base in Iraq, where US forces were stationed. In fact, more than 1500 Americans were stationed there.
After the missile attack, the base was destroyed, leaving rubble and craters in the place of large facilities that served as shelter for our US Troops. Though nobody was killed, more and more American military men are being treated for concussions. At first the number was 11, but it has gone up to 34.
Donald Trump, initially said that the American public should be thankful that no one was hurt.
People are outraged that Trump has not taken the concussions of our troops seriously. They feel that our president is not properly acknowledging what really happened. The reality is that people got really hurt.
We have to support our troops wholeheartedly. Let’s take a moment to acknowledge all that our military does for our country. When they fight for our country, they’re giving up so much. They’re giving up time with their families and putting their health and lives at risk. Depending on the severity of concussions, they can be pretty serious.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
In fact, some US service members have been reported to have traumatic brain injuries (TBIs.) Those can debilitate you for life. It’s nothing to take lightly.
It comes with immense suffering, including pain to the local point of injury, dizziness, fatigue, memory loss, severe headaches, depression, and cognitive impairments. Not to mention the grief that the family and loved ones are enduring on a daily basis. TBIs can be permanent.
Was Trump purposely downplaying these issues because he doesn’t think concussions are a big deal? Do you think he was trying to withhold information to the public? Do you think maybe he did not know about the concussions or TBIs when he made that statement?

Amen to our American heroes. God bless them and their families!
