    EOD Wounded Warrior

    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.

    Damn it saddens me to hear this! I help Vets that are disabled all the time! As sadly our government chooses to shy from their responsibility's! My Prayers are with all of you fine brave young men! That pay the ultimate price for our freedom!

    EOD, those guys are bad ass and I hate to hear that someone with so much knowledge and skill is taken out of service.

    Hoo Ya brother, you deepest regrets. I hate seeing any techs getting hurt. I did two tours through those mountains and I'm sorry to hear about anyone getting injured. I sit here pushing kids out the door to their units and off to there and I regret only having a short time with them and not giving them what they really need to know. Well I'm sure he will bounce back and as always make the crab proud!

    BE SAFE BROTHERS!!!

    Just an update on Aaron....

    He's finally been moved out of ICU. He still has several more rounds of surgery and healing to go through before they think about fitting and measuring him for his prosthetics. He is still not onto solid food yet but tries to take in as much of the shakes that they give him.

    His wife has been by his side the wholetime in MD. There are so many great charities that have stepped up to help his family and Aaron recover. He still has a long fight ahead of him, but I'm confident that he will pull through and continue to do amazing things.

    Thanks for the support and helping me deal with it too. I'll be sure to let him know just how many people are pulling for him when I go and visit him after my deployment. You guys are the best.
