DoD Videos

 

After paddle boarding helped retired Army Sgt. 1st Class Josh Collins recover from multiple traumatic brain injuries (TBI), he embarked on a record-breaking 3,500-mile paddle boarding journey to raise awareness of TBI. Former Navy Lt. Amanda Burrill and former Army Sgt. 1st Class Elana Duffy are friends who both sustained TBIs, sought help and got better through a healthy lifestyle. All three Veterans are featured in new video profiles released by A Head for the Future, a TBI awareness initiative by the Department of Defense (DoD) that shares stories of TBI recovery and hope. The videos are available at dvbic.dcoe.mil/aheadforthefuture and on the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury’s YouTube channel.
