  • well I have Severe Traumatic Brain Injury, from four yrs ago. Trying to get a standard operators permit , I had a commercial drivers license class A , now I just want to drive to church my moms house 6 miles away and the hospitals to help people that get TBI

    • Michael, we thank you for your continued support of the DCoE Blog, sharing your experience and your commitment to giving back. It's best to follow your doctor's advice when it comes to driving.

  • Why does it need to be military only? Civilian non-athletes have fewer services and outreach help. Can non-military participate?

    • As a Defense Department agency, our conferences are focused on supporting the military community. Non-millitary participants are welcome to join the Summit, which will be held virtually this year, but should be aware that our content will be military focused.
