109 U.S. troops diagnosed with brain injuries from Iran attack: Pentagon

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Pentagon said on Monday that 109 U.S. service members had been diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injury stemming from Iran’s missile attack on a base in Iraq last month.

In a statement, the Pentagon said 76 of those service members had returned to duty.

Reuters first reported on Monday that the U.S. military was preparing to report a more than 50% jump in cases of traumatic brain injury from the Iran attack.
