Yesterday right before DH got on a plane bound for Denver, we found out that a good friend of ours had been injured by an IED and was now at Walter Reed Hospital.
What was he doing in Iraq? His tour should have been over, but he extended. He was overseeing the rebuilding of the Childrens' Hospital in Basra.
We have heard that he's no longer critical, but serious.
Visiting Walter Reed has now jumped to the top of our list of things to do.
