The Defense Department said Thursday that 14 more U.S. service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury since the Iranian missile attack targeting U.S. forces at two Iraqi bases this month, bringing the total number to 64, NBC News reports.
More than half, 39, have been returned to duty. The Pentagon characterized all 64 as having been diagnosed with “mild traumatic brain injury.”
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can include concussions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The new number is an increase from earlier this week, when the Pentagon said 50 had been diagnosed. CNN reported the increase earlier Thursday.
The injuries were diagnosed after the Jan. 8 Iranian ballistic missile attack on two Iraqi bases housing U.S. forces in retaliation for the United States’ killing of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, who was commander of its elite Quds Force, in a drone operation outside Baghdad’s airport.

DONALD TRUMP – is unpredictable, sporadic and a little crazy and he’s proven it many times.
I’ve wondered if Trump had a brain injury because many brain injury survivors suffer from anger issues and irregular fits of rage.
Anger doesn’t serve anyone well unless channeled properly but let’s dig a little deeper into Trump’s kindness.
The Naughty Or Nice Test
If Donald Trump was sitting on Santa Clause’s lap and asked if he was naughty or nice he would answer nice. There’s no doubt about it. However, the majority of people throughout the world would answer naughty for Trump. Now, you could answer the same for Clinton when he was President but here’s the difference.
Clinton played the part of President in the public eye and acted professional and stoic at times. Something an American leader is expected to be.
Trump, on the other hand, can be a fire-starter and has the ability to spark controversy like alcohol to a bonfire. He often points fingers rather than admitting ever doing wrong but where he goes completely off-track is how he treats others, which is anything but presidential and more like bullying.
Examples Of Trump’s Name-Calling And Bullying
Sleepy Joe Biden
Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd
Little Adam Schiff
Little Rocket Man
Low Energy Jeb
Failing New York Times
Crazy Maxine Waters
It’s not cool to put people down and Trump insults others like there’s nothing wrong with him. Why does he feel the need to insult others when referring to them
If you’re a brain injury survivor and suffer from anger issues and resentment, I suggest talking about it with friends and family first. You can also find a local brain injury support group through your state’s brain injury association. Talking with a neuropsychologist is also a good option.
