10 soldiers from the Dowagiac-based 1-126th Cavalry were wounded by two roadside bombs that hit their convoy in Northern Afghanistan.

According to The Detroit Free Press, One lost both arms and two suffered serious head injuries, the National Guard said Wednesday.

The soldier whose arms were destroyed was identified as Spec. Eric Lund, 20, of Ludington. He was transported to a hospital in Germany, said Capt. Aaron Jenkins, state public affairs officer for the Michigan National Guard.  Jenkins said the convoy was attacked Sunday.

The 1-126th is expected to be the last combat arms unit of the Michigan National Guard sent to Afghanistan now that the the U.S. is winding down its military presence.

Before being deployed, the 1-126th asked Michigan residence to like their Facebook page as a show of support.  If you have not done it yet, I think we should all go show them that ‘The Mitten’ supports them in everything they do!
