    Just got news this morning that my brother is having complications from IED impact from last Feb. His hummer was hit side impact when the hummer in front right of his, ran over IED. Had severe concusion from impact.

    Eye problems from what we understand, detached retina in right eye, no vision to sides or to lower. Left eye is blacking out. 2 other Soldiers in hummer having similar symtoms. Memory lose, sight problems, etc.

    He is being flown out to Germany, then possibly Walter Reid for surgery.

    Thanks all, keep ya posted.

    Not happy about hearing that.

    I sure hope his recovery will be full.

    I'll try to do my best to be worthy of the service and sacrifice he has made.

    God Speed

    I hope he does OK. Walter Reed is in better shape now, but I don't know if the VA is doing much better on the paperwork end of things.

    Make sure he doesn't let stuff go unreported such as any hearing loss or neck pain, etc. This stuff comes back to haunt you many years later.

    He needs to get as many of the pertinent records copied and in his possession as possible.

    Guys, while you are on the subject...I would like to ask y'all to pray for my friend Sgt John Massey's children and family. He was killed a few days ago when our gun truck was hit by (from what we were told) two IEDs linked together. Also say a prayer for my driver Spc Weber, he was flown to Balad for possible head injuries. They said he had a minor concusion but shows signs of PTSD. He is taking the death of our friend really hard. It is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with, but I find some peace knowing he was saved.
