Assistance for OIF/OEF Veterans

Veterans are great leaders, innovators, decision makers, and members of America’s next greatest generation. Some of those qualities can be temporarily sidelined once service members return home. The goal of the Center for BrainHealth is to equip veterans with the necessary tools needed to cope with the stress of trauma and transition, in order to get America’s highly effective leaders successfully integrated back into society.

If you or someone you know is an OIF/OEF veteran, or if you have any questions, please contact:
Cedric Jones, USMC
Recruitment Coordinator
Mike Rials, USMC
