    Three years ago today my brother was wounded in Iraq. He was in a humvee when a 500 lbs bomb blew up beside it. I pray for the safe return soon of those in Iraq and Afganistan. For those on this forum who are over in the middle east god speed and stay safe.

    His foot still hurts him. He had a piece of sharpnel go through his arch and into his ankle.

    I looked to see if anything was still on the net about it and only brokingl inks came up. The inbedded jourlalist from knight ridder took a photo of him as he arrived at the mash unit. He was also interviewed on ABC's Prime Time (however he dose not remember being interviewed) The body armour and some how being blown out the door of the humvee saved his life. The two others in the hummer were killed.
