Pentagon Increases U.S. Injury Toll From Iranian Attack Yet Again — To 64

The Ain al-Assad air base, northwest of Baghdad, was one of the Iraqi bases targeted by Iranian missile strikes seen earlier this month. The Pentagon now says 64 U.S. service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury following the attacks.

The missile strikes in Iraq earlier this month did not kill any U.S. service members. But in the weeks following, the number of troops diagnosed with traumatic brain injury has gone up repeatedly.
