Two Vermont Army National Guardsmen are being treated for injuries they suffered in Iraq.
National Guard officials originally thought the wound suffered by Specialist Ross Holsapple and Sergeant Michael Dubie were minor and the two would be returned to duty quickly. Officials now say Holsapple and Dubie are being sent to Germany and then on to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
The two were wounded last week when the convoy they were escorting was hit by a roadside bomb just outside of Baghdad. The men suffered shrapnel wounds. The Vermont National Guard says about ten Vermonter Guard members have been wounded in Iraq. Three National Guardsmen have been killed.
