    Default My Brother got his ass shot off this morning

    Some of you who know me a little also know that my little brother got sent to Iraq in the Army a few weeks ago. He went to New York, then Ireland, Germany, then Kuwait and rode on down to Taji which has become a fairly major base for us there. He was only in country three weeks and he got his ass blown up. I mean he literally got his ass blown up. Road side bomb, remote detonated. He's ok.

    He was on patrol....what I've come to learn is that means they go drive around waiting for somebody to shoot at them so they can tell who's a good guy and who's a bad guy, then shoot back to kill once they can determine who's who....crazy. Anyways, they took some sniper fire while he was driving the Humvee. They stopped to return fire and he got out. As part of procedure, he did a 25 ft perimeter sweep for bombs around the truck. He missed one. it was hidden pretty well. They hit the button while he was 7 ft from it and blew his ass up. He got a piece of metal that went through his left butt cheek at at upward angle, then through his lower intestine, finally lodging in his right hip. He crawled back to the truck, got in and tried to drive off but it had 3 flat tires and a fucked up tranny. Then he passed out for a while. It hurt. He woke up, got some morphine and became mellow.

    I have to tell you, I was very impressed with the way the Army handled it. He was allowed to call his wife before he went to surgery to explain what had happened. I spoke with him after he got out. While he was in, his Colonel called Mom and Dad to give them the scoop. When he woke up, he already had his Purple Heart pinned to his pillow. Unfortunately in this case, I think practice has made perfect.

    I'm proud of my little brother. He knew what he was getting in to. He's hurt, but he's in good spirits. I almost killed him I think when I told him my new nickname for him will be "Gump" and I'm sending him a Bubba Gump shrimp T-shirt. He won't see porcelain for 3 months, but he gets to come home and see his baby born, and he's a hero to me.

    Thanks for the story. It's nice to hear that the US Army is doing something right to take care of courageous people like your brother. I'm glad he's ok because he's your brother. I hope this war ends soon so our boys and girls can come home. I understand they have a job and support that, I just wish the job gets done quicker.

    Glad to hear that he's alright, at least as best as he can beunder the circumstances! Kudos to the Army for making that extra effort to take care of their fighting men and women and their families.

    That is some scary stuff. I am so glad to hear your younger brother survived and gets to come home. I can't explain in words how I feel about the sacrifice everyone in our armed forces is making in the war on terror. These people all have more courage then I would have.

    Your brother is a hero to me, Seen.
