The Art of Soldiers Living with Brain Injuries

While researching my post yesterday about soldiers with traumatic brain injuries, I ran into something which deserved its own post. 

The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center has a program run by art therapist, Melissa Walker. She works with veterans to create expressive masks to communicate what life is like with a brain injury. 

National Geographic has a great feature on the program. The story includes the masks, family portraits, and audio clips. 

The struggle and sacrifice these veterans face is difficult to imagine. The artwork and stories helps communicate what these men and women face every day - living with a brain injury as a result of serving in the country.  

It is really worth the time to read. I strongly encourage it.
