A hug is duct tape for the soul.

From The North Country Gazette:

ALBANY– In recognition of Veterans Day and the sacrifices made by New York’s veterans, the state’s Department of Health has released the video, “Coming Home”, a personal view into the lives of veterans who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the services available to help in their recovery.

“This video is a moving tribute to the sacrifices veterans and service members have made and the challenges faced by those who have experienced a traumatic brain injury,” said Commissioner Richard Daines. “This video will benefit all individuals with TBI and their family members, as well as those who have served in the military.”

The video was produced by the Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) in cooperation with the New York State Department of Health (DOH) with funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

“Coming Home captures — in their own words — the courage and resilience of veterans who sustain a TBI in service to their country and how that changes their lives and the lives of their families,” said BIANYS Executive Director Judith Avner.

The video is narrated by Lee Woodruff, author and wife of ABC News Reporter Bob Woodruff, who sustained a head injury in 2006 while covering the war in Iraq when the Army tank he was riding in was hit by a roadside bomb; and by Dave Hughes, an advocate for individuals with TBIs who sustained a brain injury in 1992, shortening his once successful radio career.

Copies of the DVD and further information may be obtained from the Brain Injury Association at 1-800-228-8201.
