Wounded Warriors of the 2/505th

Posted on January 25, 2009. Filed under: Fallen Heroes, Wounded Warriors |

Sunday, January 25th, 2009– In an effort to honor our soldiers fighting to preserve order and defeat Islamofascism in Iraq, I am attempting to post the pictures and information of those who give the ultimate sacrifice. But there are also those who are wounded whom I would also like to honor.

I will not make a new post each time a soldier is wounded, I will update this one. Also, due to privacy concerns I will restrict what information I put on this blog and speak in general terms so that we can pray for these wounded warriors without violating their right to privacy.

1. PFC Bradley was wounded Jan. 11th in the same blast that killed SSGT Bauer. Pfc Bradley is being treated at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, is reported to be in fine spirits and will soon begin rehab. Pray for Pfc Bradley to heal quickly and to continue in high spirits. My son, Luke, went to Airborne School with Pfc Bradley.
