“It is one of the great maxims of naval history that Sailors and Marines are the sea services’ greatest advantage and most important asset. For more than a decade, we’ve asked a tremendous amount of our people and their families,” Mabus said. “In turn, we have a responsibility to support their needs, whether they are serving the Navy and Marine Corps mission around the globe or transitioning from uniformed service to civilian life.”
 
“Keeping faith with veterans under all circumstances is our solemn vow,” said Mabus. “It is vitally important to address those service members whose separation is a result of PTSD/TBI.”
