It's estimated one in five veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq suffers from traumatic brain injury, also known as TBI. Two years ago Vermont received a $951,000 grant to help veterans suffering from TBI find jobs.  But to date only a handful of vets have taken advantage of the program. The reasons for this illustrate the challenges facing service providers and vets with brain injuries. The U.S. Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the state of Vermont and Secretary of State Jim Condos. Vermont Republican gubernatorial candidate Randy Brock is criticizing incumbent Governor Peter Shumlin for what Brock says is too much time away from the office.
