Some military service members with traumatic brain injury may not be receiving the financial aid to which they are entitled between the time of onset of injury to receipt of usual veterans' benefits, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released January 29 (http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d09108.pdf). The report was requested by Rep Darrell Issa (R, Calif), ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
