PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A non-profit is building a multi-million dollar center to treat Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-Traumatic Stress for active duty service members at a Florida military base.

Eglin Air Force Base’s 96th Medical Group Hospital will break ground on the new $11 million Intrepid Spirit Center this week. The facility will be the eighth in a series of ten centers at military bases around the country including Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, Fort Hood, Texas, Fort Bragg, North Carolina and Camp Pendleton, California.

The project is being privately funded by the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which serves United States military personnel experiencing the invisible wounds of war.
