Pentagon Says Military TBI Is Down 42 Percent

The latest traumatic brain injury news from the Pentagon is surprisingly good, as they report that incidences of TBI among U.S. troops are down 42 percent. That is a drop from 644.6 per month in 2011 to 372.8 for 2012.

Time doesn’t know what is┬ánecessarily┬áthe cause of the drop, be it better armor, smaller numbers of deployed forces, or other efforts. What we do know is this is the largest annual drop in TBI since 9/11, and 3,300 troops this year went without TBI this year compares to last year.
