Charity-Funded Clinic To Help Fort Campbell Troops
A private foundation broke ground at Fort Campbell for a new clinic to treat the signature wounds of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in another push toward their goal to raise millions to treat post-traumatic stress and brain injuries. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund promised last year to raise more than $100 million to build nine of these centers at military installations across the country.
The Fort Campbell clinic, which is set to open in a year, will be the third clinic. Retired Army Gen. Richard Cody, who is a trustee with the fund, said about $30 million has been raised for all the nine clinics, but more help is needed from the American public to treat these returning soldiers.
