PRAYERS NEEDED: FReeper Socomofficer [US Army Captain Mike] seriously wounded in Iraq
e-mail from one of Captain Mike's men | May 3, 2005 | FReeper Socomofficer [US Army Captain Mike]

To follow is a very troubling e-mail that I just received from one of Captain Mike's men:

My dear friends,

I forgot to duck. By the time most of us read this I will be on my way to Germany for treatment. The doctors have decided that I'm too severely injured to continue my job. I don't know when I be back stateside but I will let you know.

Michael Pierce
CPT, US Army

This message was dictated to me before the captain lost consciousness. I'm not a doctor so I can't tell you his condition. I can tell you that he did it right and saved the lives of several men in the vicinity. The unit sends its sympathies to his friends and family.

Personally, I found him to be the finest officer that I have ever known and am honored to serve under him. Again, you all have our thanks and our sympathies.

Marc Owen
1st LT, US Army

My fellow FREEPers,

I know it's been a while. Well i forgot to duck. By the time most of you see this I will be on my way to Germany for treatment. The war for me is done. My men continue to do the job. This last rash of bombings and attacks are being under reported and I don't know why. Al Queada is getting desparate. I don't know when I'm will RTS. But I do imagine that it will be soon. God I love wireless. LOL! Please keep praying for us.

This is CPT Pierce. To the FREEPers, keep the faith folks we will do our jobs. That is my promise to you all. Watch our backs back here in the world.

Right now we are waiting for transport north. And for obvious reasons I cannot disclose much more than that.

Thank you for your kind words and your support.
They mean a great deal to my men and myself.

I sign this to you folks ... socomofficer.

God bless America and all those who understand that freedom comes with a price tag.

Why is the email you have slightly different than the previous one posted?

Yes the other mail sails treatment; but doesn't specify a wound.

For a non MIL knowledgeable civ, that can mean decontamination, shots, processing....unless specify 'serious injury'.

What is up?

He said he was on his way home.

To be technical about it, he said he was on his way to Germany for [medical] treatment for his injuries.

I read the 'I forgot to duck' to mean that he was hit.

I cannot help myself for feeling a bit cynical and distrusting concerning this FReeper.

Medical was assumed in 'this' post, not previous. Treatment could mean other things to those that don't know the process, ie, shots, decontamination, or such.

I share your concern -- two threads going, one supposedly posted by the soldier himself, another "dictated" before he "lost consciousness."

Heavenly Father, we lift up our brother Capt. Pierce to you right now and ask you to restore him to health. Comfort him and his loved ones, Lord. Increase their faith. Pour out uncommon favor on them.

Bless Capt. Pierce, 1st Lt. Owen and all the men and women serving in the armed forces defending freedom around the world. Place a hedge of protection around our brave servicemen and women.

In the mighty name of Jesus, amen.

Hiya Howlin!

I don't know yet. There is another thread posted with this similar text but 'edited'.

I'm waiting for answers. The threads have very similar wording.

Previous thread didn't say he was medically wounded.

Hold on sympathies and stand back for a moment. :)

When someone knows something definate, please post!!! The 2 boys "of ours" that have come home are both having troubles, nightmares...One was just 18 when he left to go to Iraq, (youngest daughter's best guy pal) turned 19 while there, and he is having trouble coming to grips that he had to kill..he talks to my daughter, and she has been very good about showing no reaction to what he had to do, but I think he needs someone who is trained to know how to help him...his parents don't see it, or don't want to.
