While on patrol in Iraq in 2007, U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Major Gary D. Moran was knocked unconscious by an improvised explosive device (IED). He woke up covered in shrapnel. At the time, he didn’t realize he had sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Moran shares his story as a TBI champion for A Head for the Future, the TBI awareness and prevention initiative from the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center: http://dvbic.dcoe.mil
Visit http://dvbic.dcoe.mil/aheadforthefuture to learn about inspiring stories from those in the military community who experienced brain injuries and sought help. The website also features additional resources to prevent, recognize and recover from brain injury.

It’s important to know that each brain injury is different. Not everyone with TBI experiences the same signs and symptoms -- this is why it's always a good idea to get checked out by a medical provider.
