Hey guys. I'm going to ask that tonight you say a special prayer for a friend of mine and his family. SFC Aaron Causey, EOD, was conducting dismounted Counter-IED operations in southern Afghanistan and was injured when an IED detonated while he was working on it. SFC Causey has been MEDEVAC'd and is on his way back to Bethesda Naval Medical Center. He has lost both legs above the knee and has several other injuries but is in good spirits. He will be reunited with his wife and mother upon arrival in the states.
I served proudly with Aaron in Iraq during the Surge and he is a consumate professional. This is just another part of the personal toll this war takes on servicemembers. Aaron is a very strong man and has a wonderful relationship with God. The world is a better place with warriors and patriots like SFC Causey.
Please keep him and his wife Kat in your thoughts and prayers as he begins his recovery process.
SFC Thomas Hennig
