In the last 15 years, more than 330,000 members of the military were diagnosed with at least one traumatic brain injury (TBI). The research field for TBI is expansive, but treatment can be both time-consuming and costly. For active duty troops and service members transitioning to civilian life, growing waiting times and costs can prove devastating.
Sgt. 1st Class Andrew Marr, whose own career as an Army Special Forces Green Beret explosive breacher was cut short in 2006 after he suffered multiple TBIs, has made it his mission to help active duty soldiers and veterans dealing with TBI get the help they need, when and where they need it.
