Some News from One of Matt's Fellow Soldiers

Terry Clees was injured in the same explosion in which Matt was injured. I believe he was the driver of the Humvee. This infomation has come from Terry's step-mother, Catherine Clees. She requests that we continue to pray for Terry's recovery.

Terry suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, extensive injuries to his right arm, and various shrapnel wounds. He is currently in the Polytrauma Unit at the VA Hospital in Minneapolis MN. He has PT, OT, RT and speech therapy daily. He continues to make small improvements, and can walk with a walker and some assistance in physical therapy. Updates regarding his condition can be found on his MySpace at

My heart goes out to Terry and his family. Sadly, there are so many soldiers to include in our thoughts and prayers, but we keep them all there, and pray for their continued recoveries.
