Interesting research linking proximity to detonated explosives with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

Interesting article Fro. Like they said now the hard part is coming up with a solution. I know they said head immobilization negates the problem, but in combat the side effect of head immobilization could be more deadly than the trauma. Everything is a plus and a minus. I can see helmets similar to football or nascar helmets with the padded ring around the base to the shoulders, but visibility and maneuverability suffer from those things.

It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

The problem is... There is no easy fix. Heck, I don't even think there's a tough fix! I love and support this Nation and I am proud to serve it but when you keep your soldiers in and out of war for over 10 years straight, bad things will result...

Th more protection we put on, the more vulnerable we are.  There comes a point when it is too much, and too cumbersome, that it will end up resulting in more bad then good.  Wearing head immobilization agents, and more body armor just weighs a guy down, which means he Is slower and more vulnerable
