Mosul to Maine – For this Veteran, a
journey of trauma and recovery
February 2009, Mary Torczon suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) when an
improvised explosive device exploded about 20 feet from her as she was
passing near an Iraqi police checkpoint near Mosul. In an instant,
the suicide car bomb ripped through the Humvee in front of her, taking the
lives of her battalion commander and her two best friends. Now, she is on the adventure of recovery.
