Today a new battle is being fought for our service members and their families. This battle is to help those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and help integrate them back into society.
The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association of Northern Virginia, Chapter 27-2 are veterans helping veterans.
In addition to PTSD, the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have uncovered a new injury called Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). TBI is a source of morbidity in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.
This injury is so subtle that often it does not present itself until years after the veteran returns home.
These brave men and women have laid their lives on the line to maintain our freedom and now we believe it is our turn to help them and their families deal with the issues of PTSD and TBI here in Virginia.

The VWWP monitors and coordinates behavioral health and rehabilitative services and support services through an integrated, comprehensive and responsive system of public and private partnerships.
VWWP facilitates these services for Virginia veterans, members of the Virginia National Guard and Armed Forces Reserves (not in federal service), and their families with a special emphasis on those affected by stress related conditions or traumatic brain injuries resulting from military service.
