Fellow Blogger-Soldier Down - But Not Out

CPT Charles Ziegenfuss is a blogger in Iraq stationed with C/2-34 AR, 3BCT. According to his blog he has been injured in the line of duty. From his blog his wife Carren explains:

"This is Carren writing to tell Chuck's faithful readers that he has been injured, but is in stable condition. I won't give details for fear of misinformation (and the fact that this can be accessed by millions of people).

In general... Chuck sustained shrapnel wounds to his legs and arms from an IED. He and an Iraqi civilian were the only ones injured. The Good Lord above was looking out for him in a BIG way! He is probably in Landstuhl (sp?), Germany by now and will be back in the states in the next week to 10 days (as far as I know right now). He still has his eyesite and has not sustained internal injuries that I know of. I have not talked to him yet... they have kept him sedated for his trip to Germany, as well as for pain management. He also has some injuries to his face, but I think it is just bruised/scratched up quite a bit."

Mrs Mac and I (long time Army-type people) want to thank God for protecting Chuck and wish him a speedy recovery!
