FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (Oct. 25, 2012) -- Three Tennessee Titans quarterbacks dropped by Fort Campbell's Warrior Resiliency and Recovery Center on Tuesday, visiting Soldiers recovering from traumatic brain injuries as well as other wounded, injured and ill Soldiers in the Warrior Transition Battalion.
Quarterbacks Jake Locker, Matt Hasselbeck and Rusty Smith not only learned about the multidisciplinary treatment Soldiers recovering from traumatic brain injuries receive at Fort Campbell, the players also experienced the treatment sessions firsthand.
This visit was just one example of the ways that the Army and the NFL are partnering to improve awareness of traumatic brain injuries and increase research into its causes, prevention and treatment.
The Titans presented each Soldier with an inaugural National Football League Salute to Service pin, a camouflage ribbon. The same design will also adorn NFL footballs during the month of November in honor of veterans and military service members.
