Chuck has been injured

Chuck, Company Commander here in Iraq and the writer of From My Position... On the way!, has been hurt. His wife has a message up on his site right now:

Chuck has been injured, but is stable
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.
Chuck and his wife need support right now. Go over there and see for yourself.

That is an Order!

Update: Chuck's Wife Carren has posted an update on Chuck's condition
