Marines Injured in Afghanistan Remain Hospitalized

(RepublicanPress.org) – Americans may never determine the full extent of the ravages of war suffered by veterans and civilians over the last two decades. Sadly, four US Marines injured in last month’s suicide bomber attack at Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport remain hospitalized.

On Tuesday, September 21, Marine Corps spokesperson Captain Johnny Henderson told the daily military newspaper Stars and Stripes that medical professionals at Walter Reed Medical Center are treating all four heroes.

According to him, one Marine remains in “very serious” condition, and the other three are listed as “serious.” Fortunately, doctors have stabilized the condition of all four Marines.

Capt. Henderson didn’t provide further information about the injured Marines’ conditions or their names, as is the customary practice with America’s armed services.

Fifteen injured Marines had been at Walter Reed as recently as September 7, with one in critical, three in serious, and the rest in stable condition.

The August 26 suicide bomber attack killed 13 active-duty US service members and about 170 Afghans. The troops all received Purple Hearts posthumously. Additionally, lawmakers are currently considering awarding them Congressional Gold Medals.

We send our thoughts and prayers to the injured Marines and their family members, along with all veterans and civilians who served in the Afghan conflict.
