In-theater mTBI Restoration

 

Written by Command Sgt. Maj. Scott Schroeder

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionAfghanistan – Concussive events are not new, but the military really hasn’t paid much attention to these injuries until recently. As we started intensive ground combat operations, leaders did not understand the lasting impacts of concussive- type events (mostly caused by improvised explosive devices) and medical providers didn’t have the experience, or capacity, to treat the number of Soldiers suffering such injuries.

A report by the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center estimates 95,942 Soldiers have been treated for mTBI since 2003. Over the past seven years, I have seen great advances in the way we train, track and treat Soldiers with these injuries.

Patients receive comprehensive screenings and exertional testing to ensure they are 100 percent when they return to their units.

The AT&T/T-Mobile Merger: Five issues for consumers

 

Written by Paul Reynolds

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY – AT&T, one of the biggest national wireless carriers, is proposing to buy T-Mobile, one of the smallest. It’s a $39 billion deal that, if approved by regulators, will see AT&T’s 95 million and T-Mobile’s 33 million subscribers served by a united company, probably beginning sometime next year.

What’s at stake for consumers? It’s early days, obviously, but our advocacy colleagues at Consumers Union (the non-profit publisher of Consumer Reports) have already voiced concern, saying: “From a consumer’s perspective, it’s difficult to come up with any justification or benefits from letting AT&T swallow up one of its few major competitors.” «Read the rest of this article»
