50 troops suffered traumatic brain injury after Iran attack

The Pentagon said that 50 US soldiers were now diagnosed with traumatic brain injury after missile attacks by Iran on a base in Iraq earlier this month, 16 more than the military had previously announced. President Donald Trump and other top officials initially said Iran’s January 8 attack had not killed or injured any US service members. Symptoms of concussive injuries include headaches, dizziness, sensitivity to light and nausea. A total of 31 of the 50 were treated in Iraq and returned to duty, including 15 of those diagnosed most recently. Eighteen of the total have been sent to Germany for further evaluation and treatment, while one was sent to Kuwait and has since returned to duty.
