IED: The Deadliest Weapon

Watch CBS News Videos Online
Traumatic Brain Injuries(TBI)are the signature injuries of the Afghan War for coalition troops. This 60 Minutes video explains what American troops are doing to combat Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). (This is very similar to what Canadian Soldiers are doing.) Combat Engineers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the military and account for a high percentage of casualties among American and Canadian troops.
