Helping Wounded Warriors heal is a major concern of our client The Marine Corps League.
Recently, an article in Semper Fi, the League’s member magazine we assist them in publishing, reported on post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury. These often invisible wounds are what many call the signature wounds of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The article, “Binding the ‘Invisible Wounds,'” came to the attention of BrainlineMilitary.org, a service of WETA, the public TV and radio station in Washington, DC.
They asked permission to add it to their website and the League was happy to oblige as part of its ongoing mission to aid injured Marines and other members of our military. “The article is excellent and will no doubt help a lot of service members, veterans, their families and friends, and professionals in the field,” said Victoria Tilney McDonough, the editor for BrainLine.org.
WETA is the third-largest producing station for PBS. WETA’s productions and co-productions include The New Hour with Jim Lehrer, Washington Week with Gwen Ifill and National Journal, and documentaries by filmmaker Ken Burns, including, most recently, The War.
BrainLineMilitary.org is funded by the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, the Primary Operational TBI Component of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, through a subcontract award with the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine.
