Article: Saint Louis University helps veterans with ‘invisible injuries’

Please meet our newest Member David “Moose” McArthur II he was recently featured on KSDK in St Louis where he talked about his traumatic brain injury he suffered during combat. Below is a small excerpt from the article, to read the article in full please click here.

“It’s kind of like something you’re born to do. You know, like my whole life I was playing military, in my yard and with my friends,” McArthur says with a wide smile. “I was gung ho. I had my car covered with Marine stickers.”

But in May of 2010 , Lance Corporal Dave McArthur’s dream of military service turned into a nightmare. His armored vehicle went over a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. McArthur walked away from the explosion without any injuries-that you could see.

“I was told to sleep on it. Told to go to sleep. You know, if you have a concussion you don’t go to sleep. But, we were told to sleep on it,” McArthur recalls.
