Many experts believe that the hallmark injury of the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is traumatic brain injury.  In fact, the Department of Defense and the Veteran’s Brain Injury Center estimated that 22% of all injuries received by soldiers during the recent wars were brain injuries.  Unfortunately, a large percentage of our veterans and soldiers with traumatic brain injuries never receive adequate treatment.  They may subsequently experience deficits such as poor memory, difficulty sustaining concentration and a lack of sufficient impulse control.  These problems often negatively impact success as they return to their lives at home and at work.

The Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute offers rehabilitative services under a special program called Project Victory which is designed to help soldiers and veterans with traumatic brain injuries.  To qualify, the soldier or veteran must have served in Operation New Dawn (Iraq), Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) or Operation Iraqi Freedom and have a suffered a traumatic brain injury/concussion during that military service.

There is no cost to the Project Victory participants.  The program is supported by a grant administered by the TIRR foundation and is independent of any government agency.  Length of stay is generally between 6-10 weeks and program participants receive a full range of therapeutic services designed to improve their lives.  These include psychological, speech, physical, occupational and recreational therapies.

Here is a wonderful news story by KPRC on some of our Project Victory participants and the gains they made in the program: http://www.click2houston.com/news/Project-Victory-gives-veterans-healing-hope/-/1735978/9208576/-/wrctws/-/index.html
