Russell Worth Parker is a United States Marine Corps Special Operations Officer retiring to write and teach. His more than 27 years of service included infantry and special operations assignments in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is grateful for the work of scientists like Rachel Lance and the expert medical and administrative staff at the Intrepid Spirit TBI Clinic at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Rachel Lance, Ph.D., is a research professor at Duke University. She specializes in the biomechanics of trauma and survival in extreme environments, including blasts. Worth Parker found her online following her publication of an article about blast lung, and they decided to write this piece together to provide a similar explanation of TBI.
