First Two of Several Centers to be Built in Fort Belvoir, VA and Camp Lejeune

Thousands of American service members living with traumatic head injuries from exposure to IEDs in Iraq and Afghanistan will be able to get the treatment they deserve when two new centers are opened at Fort Belvoir, VA and Camp LeJeune, NC. With the groundbreakings today at each location for the new National Intrepid Centers of Excellence (NICoE), there is new hope for those suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS).

These crucial research and treatment centers will be financed and built by the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), which today announced a $100 million capital campaign to support the effort. The first two centers, and others that will follow, will be placed at military bases and medical centers around the country to provide medical care for service members without having to separate them from their units, or leave their families, for extended periods of treatment. This proximity to family and unit is expected to enhance care and rehabilitation.
