The Army is taking a collaborative approach to promote better understanding of TBI and PTSD in response to the growing number of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans displaying symptoms of both conditions. The Army's efforts include a $60 million research study on TBI with the NFL and other partners and the opening of seven restorative centers in Afghanistan where injured personnel can recover from TBI near their field of operations, said Brig. Gen. John M. Cho, a surgeon and deputy chief of staff for operations with Army Medical Command. In addition, the White House allocated $700 million to be used collaboratively with the VA and other partners to study TBI and PTSD.
