A friend WIA in Iraq

A friend of mine was wounded in Iraq a few days ago by an IED.

He is all right, lost a lot of skin on one leg and the tendons in his left leg were exposed. He was the only soldier injured in the explosion and his XO has taken command of his battalion. He is on his way back home to rehabilitate.

What sucks is he had just gotten over there, but it could have been much worse.

I ask for your prayers and good thoughts for a good soldie, officer, and friend. LTC Jamie Inman. 3-320 FAR, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)

Every time I hear about an injured or wounded from the 101st, I think about you and your boys, Redleg.

My thoughts and prayers are always going out to them, but now I have a name to go with my thoughts and prayers.

Keep us updated on his recovery.

The IED shredded his right leg and foot and put a bolt through his left foot, but not life threatening and he probably will not lose his foot.

It will slow him down running because he was a rabbit if I recall.

With luck he will be all right.

ooof.....
Sounds like he's got a long and painful recovery ahead of him.

I know you'll be there to provide moral support- just make sure he knows that the rest of us support him too.

You got it Redleg! Thanks for sharing this personal story, and like AFS said, please keep everyone updated.

Take care!

Is he at Walter Reed? If so, I will send him a note.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
