Prayers needed !! SF Soldier loses leg in IED strike.
Recently a very close buddy of mine, an 18D SF Soldier with 7th Grp (A), lost his right leg and sustained severe burns too most of the other leg and stomach. While serving in the Kunar Province of Afghanistan in support of ISAF operations.
I watched him as he clawed and chewed his way through Basic, AIT, Airborne school. Then to SFAS and after being "Selected" he attended the SFQC as an 18D (SF Medic) candidate. It took him 36 months too get to the stage to walk across it and recieve his Graduation Certificate and Green Beret. I was there for the "Dawning of the beret" ceremony.
He is at Bethesda Medical and just needs your prayers. He's in great spirits, as an SF Soldier alway's is, and has a designated caregiver assigned to him by the DoD. His designated caregiver is a former SF Soldier, also an 18D (SF Medic)
God Bless our Troops and America !!
