NPR recently reported on an investigation they carried out about traumatic brain injuries. Basically, the military was refusing to give the Purple Heart to folks who had ended up with TBI from enemy action.
Today NPR reported that the army has revised their guidelines and are now promising that any soldier who didn't get a purple heart for TBI will have their case "aggressively" reconsidered.
Thoughts? (Here's the link to today's story on NPR).

Why the military seems to be so dismissive of alot of their soldiers is beyond me.
Its good to see some of that is changing. They held a conference recently about sucicdes and PTSD....I hope it leads somewhere
