    Do progressives think they invented concern for the Military? There is no "hidden peril". Everyone knows that the IED tactics and mortar rounds cause traumatic head injuries just like they have done for the last two hundred years. The severely wounded get faster and better care than ever before and sometimes they survive traumatic injuries that were considered non survivable years ago.
