PostSubject: Positive Thoughts   August 9th 2011, 12:57 pm

I know a lot of people don't read this section during this time of year, but I figured any extra positive thoughts/vibes/prayers would be good, no matter how many.

As many of you know my husband is currently deployed. Obviously I know all of our men and women in uniform need positive thoughts and prayers for their safety and protection every single day but I would like to request thoughts for a more specific situation at the moment.

Without going into to many details on Friday afternoon the vehicle my husband was traveling in while returning from a mission was hit by a Rocket Propelled Grenade (a bomb, the same type that they are saying took down the helicopter in Afghanistan the same day killing all the Navy Seals and other service members) and it subsequently exploded in the vehicle. There were five people in the vehicle, including my husband, and several critical injuries. Thankfully my husband was one of two that was not seriously injured (which was good for everyone involved since my husband was the ONLY medic on the convoy). The most critically injured was the driver.....he has lost part of his right leg and is lucky to be alive, by all accounts. He is facing years of rehabilitation and had just turned 21 years old.

The soldiers that were seriously injured will be making their way back to the states this week and their families will be reunited with them, being forced to face reality and see first hand the effects and injuries that were sustained. Please pray for these men and their families as they return to the states. Pray they are able to fully recover and overcome their injuries. My husband and the other soldier have been cleared for duty and are back out performing operations and missions. I know it is weighing heavy on both of their minds that some of their brothers weren't as lucky as they were and they are very concerned for their safe travel and adjustment to their new task of surgeries and recovery and hospitals.

I am so thankful that no one was killed, that wasn't the case for so many that day. If you could please say a prayer, send some thoughts, or just keep these men in your thoughts through this week while they make their journeys I would be extremely grateful.

Hugs to you sweetie. You must have been so scared when you learned of this. I am so very glad your husband is okay and he was able to take care of the other soldiers. Truly I do not know how these young men and women have the courage to do what they do.

They are always in my prayers.

Thanks for the thoughts guys, I really appreciate it.

Here is what the Lieutenant Colonel sent out to the entire unit about the whole thing

"As many of you know by now, some of our soldiers were attacked on Friday. A patrol from (my husband's company) was struck by a anti-armor grenade and three soldiers were wounded. First, I thank God for His protection and healing. The wounds are not nearly as bad as initially reported. Much of that has to do with the superb performance by the (Division) and (Base in Iraq) medical team. A young medic, PFC Key (my husband), who graduated from AIT in April, performed magnificently. The medevac helicopters picked up our wounded and delivered them to the Combat Surgical Hospital in nearly record time. Finally, the staff of surgeons and doctors at the CSH provided simply outstanding care. I want to thank them again in this public forum."

I obviously edited out any unit specific information and location information for security purposes.
Thankfully by the time I was notified I didn't know about the original report of injuries, they had all their info straight on who was hurt and how bad by the time I was contacted.
