Top officer says military takes brain injuries 'Extremely Seriously'
from Pro Publica
Gen. Peter Chiarelli, the Army's vice chief of staff, defended the military's handling of soldiers who suffered brain injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan. "We are taking this extremely seriously," Chiarelli said in response to an investigation by National Public Radio and ProPublica which found the military is failing to identify and treat soldiers with so-called mild traumatic brain injuries. "There's no reason for us not to try to diagnose it."
