Operation TBI Freedom
Operation TBI Freedom (OTF) is a privately funded program, assisting veterans and active duty military personnel with service-related traumatic brain injuries (TBI) that occurred on, or after, September 11, 2001. In Colorado alone, more than 7,200 veterans will return from conflict with a TBI. Traumatic Brain Injury is a serious, yet invisible injury. For those with TBI, the transition to civilian life can be especially difficult. Burg Simpson attorneys Diane Vaksdal Smith and Graham Hersh are members of the Operation TBI Freedom advisory board.
