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)
