Father’s Update: Wounded Sandpoint Soldier

Today Brandon's wound has been closed! If no infection happens he'll be on his way.I took a tour of the New physical fitness building for the injuried soldiers. He will be taken care of in the most state of the art complex we the people have to offer to a wounded soldier. I even was able to watch limbs made for his fellow countryman. I have met with others who have been wounded in a like manner as Brandon. If I may say these men make it look easy! Many left their homes as young men and came as great men. They are the pinnicale of courage, honor, patriotism. Something that becomes infectious as you are honored to walk among our military men and women. I am humbled to be in the presence of such sacrifice. The men and women that still are in the war zone need their countries support. Always prayer, then for us to send a clear message to congress that no matter our personal feelings that we stand in support of these men and women our military! -- Doug Adam (father of Brandon Adam, a Sandpoint soldier who lost both legs recently in a roadside bombing in Iraq).
