Tonight Adrien Guest, a purple heart veteran whose tours of Afghanistan (2/35 Cacti Battalion 3rd bde) and Iraq (1/14 Golden Dragons Strycker Infentry bde) will be joining us to relate his experiences and his progress in overcoming the TBI imparted onto him after an IED nearly packed his lunch in Afghanistan.
Traumatic brain injuries, once totally ignored by the DoD in an effort to facilitate retention numbers, as well, their life shattering impacts are now signatures of IED encounters. Chronic homelessness has now been entered onto the list of TBI symptoms in medical circles beyond the VA. In the past, military members who were subjected to even severe TBI were routinely kept in service and all too often as the post injury changes progressed were put out with less than honorable discharge. Medical incident report records were routinely wiped out in these past cases and standard operating procedures at the VA today for those past cases it is believed still include procedures which in all too many cases have resulted in fraudulent diagnosis and catastrophic consequences for many patients. Also it should be noted that 7 out 10 veteran suicides are of those over the age of 50. This puts their time in service squarely in line with the era in which TBI was routinely ignored.
Willie Kimbell, Bridging The Gap of Georgia's very first and very successful client will be joining us as well to detail the road he has traveled to a life beyond the military, as well as the resources availed upon him by BTG which continue to be instrumental in his ongoing and totally upward trajectory.

Ruth Moore Act HR 671: The bill would allow a statement by a survivor of military sexual trauma to be considered sufficient proof that an assault occurred. The House approved the bill by voice vote Monday night. Cathy Santos contacted the office of Congresswoman Pingree and shared the following comments as being the only victim of sexual assaults to fight the government and win while service with a 15-6 Pentagon Investigation.
I was concerned about the language here that appears to give sexual assault victims way too much power over their authority. These subordinates while serving, in my interpretation will be able to provide a statement - now, in my experience of 22 years, I know that their are a great deal of women who have been denied the opportunity to tell their stories and to get the remedy they deservied; however, I also believe that the national security is being compromised by the command's ability to lead without these restrictions placed on them by advocates in the civilians world.
How is it possible to lead a command in combat with thiese type who have no real training for war because of the restricitions placed on their leaders.
Sexual assault victims and sexual harassment is a complicated matter and victims die, are murdered in combat. There are no protections for these victims when in combat or other remote environments and the power to use "rape" over their superiors is not to be taken lightly.
Civilians can not protect victims of rape on active duty, it will get worst for them, and no civilian can protect those who are given the power to provide a "statement" that becomes the only evidence required when false accusations are made, and reputations and careers are ruined - this is a poorly worded legislation and the military is not moving forward as a result. I will be following up.
