Afghanistan – 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.
