He come home from Iraq before Thanksgiving and spent a few of those holidays with us and never mentioned anything about being wounded. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago, he called me late from LeJune one night and told me what happened. He's home tonight and I'm so proud of him.

1st: His unit was in their hummers and his received a burst of machine gun fire and he got hit above his right collarbone and his left elbow. Luckily no bones were hit.

2nd: He was the turret gunner when his hummer hit an IED and he was thrown from the hummer and recieved a concusion and shrapnel wounds.

The reason he didn't tell me was that he didn't want to alarm and upset me. Once again I'm so proud of him. Just thought I'd share.

ETA: My boy is only 19 and was wounded twice in combat. My emotions have been strong until he told me this. He is my hero.

Shake his hand and buy him a drink for me. Screw the 21 law. Any MAN that has gotten it twice sure as hell deserves some good drinks.

I think Wisconsin allows service members to drink even if under 21.

Too bad no commands will allow it, and will bust you down in a heartbeat for it.

As impressive it is for your son to have been wounded twice in combat for our country it is doubly so for his modesty and consideration for his family. You have a great son and patriot . God bless him.

Make sure he looks in to see if his state gives any financial bennies to PH recipients. Some of them are well worth it.

You did real good until you made that statement. What's wrong with you? If his son was in the Air Force would you say the same thing? And yes there are Air Force troops in combat over there.
