Last night's all-new episode of "Army Wives" finally revealed what was really going on with Joan. Even though the Lieutenant Colonel thought she dodged the worst during her RPG incident while serving in Iraq, she is now shocked by the news that, six months later, she is suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), a problem that faces many soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. In the "Army Wives" home movie below, Joan talks about TBI and how the injury has changed her life and identity.

Watch the pivotal scene from last night's "Army Wives" where Joan is given her diagnosis online now. For more information on TBI, including prevention, its appearance in the military and how "Army Wives" and Lifetime are working to support TBI awareness, click here!
