ATSJ-BP 2013 MEMORANDUM FOR President, Medical Review Board SUBJECT: Letter of recommendation for SSG BLANK, BLANK. It is without question that I experienced a life changing injury while deployed but during the recovery he has demonstrated from long hours of functional recovery both physical and mental rehabilitation that I am willing to do whatever it takes to complete his mission, which in this case is to remain in SLC. I've verbally asked and said I'd do whatever I need to do to graduate, what can I do? How is it that the NCO creed counts for so much?

The issues that SSG has and will always have to deal with are contributing factors of moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). SSr has multiple shoulder injuries as a result of combat but it is believed by his doctors that he will be fully functional in one year. More specifically TBI injuries symptoms are but not limited to, short term memory problems, concentration problems, weekly migraines, and time management, all these are also published in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and Army Medicine doctrine. SSG currently takes a list of medication to help with certain symptoms that include, migraine medication, Oxi-codone and Tramadol for his shoulder, Adderall and Welbutrin for attention and mild depression. Some of the side effects can be extreme nervousness and paranoid delusions, mood swings that include hostility and severe aggression depression, apathy, cannot focus thoughts, anxious, chronic trouble sleeping to name a few. I have learned to mitigate most of these side effects like purchase extra alarm clocks to help wake up and breathing techniques to help calm. If anyone has a doubt in this letter then I would like the opportunity to ask for statements from previous leaders, possibly civilians at the Proponency, Initiatives, and Integration section and have the opportunity to show my NCOERs and Enlisted Records
