55. update on my nephew...
Trey is at Bagram. His right foot was traumatically amputated and he has shrapnel wounds to both his legs, his right arm and the right side of his back. He was scheduled to be flown to Germany today but was bumped off the flight and will be flown out tomorrow. My thanks go out to the best healthcare professionals in the world for saving Trey's life.
For those who have asked, Trey is Sgt. Thomas Humphrey III, Squad leader, First Platoon, Kilo Company, Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, Sangin, Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
My many, many thanks to all you who have posted here for your kind words or dots "." of support. With tears in my eyes, I am honored by your outpouring. DU is a special place to me because of the caliber of folks who participate here... folks such as each of you. I am finding it a very special place indeed in this time of tribulation.
Thank you again, and
may we have peace in our time,
