Army Andy on the left, with our parents.
Andy (currently deployed to somewhere in Afghanistan) called Daniel (my other brother) this morning to say he's been shot. It's just like him to want to make the call himself. We are waiting by the phone for more info...but your prayers are appreciated.
According to the medic, who assumed the call when the drugs started to kick in, Andy will go to the local med unit for stabilization then it would be a 10 hour flight to Germany for surgery. The Army will call Daniel from Germany.
Waiting and praying.
6:45 PM Central UPDATE:
Not much to update except that the Army has contacted my parents and my brother and are begining the process of arranging transportation (although it's not clear where to yet). His assessment in Germany is pending...not sure yet if he's arrived there or when he will. Hurry up and wait has a new meaning.
