On Wednesday, May 16, IAVA Membership Coordinator Nick Colgin appeared on CBS News and discussed how his traumatic brain injury changed his life forever. New research suggests traumatic brain injuries triggered by bomb blasts may have more in common with the head injuries of athletes than previously thought. Over 200,000 U.S. service members have been diagnosed with a brain injury in the last ten years. Watch the full segment below.
