Earlier this past week you may have heard on Glenn Becks radio show Michelle Bachman recounted a story that last Sunday (April 22nd) she was in Afghanistan and stood over a young man who had just lost his left leg in an IED attack.
Let me tell you the rest of the story, that young man had to be PFC. Justin Lansford, (22 years old) whose vehicle was hit by a IED earlier that day. Justin is a close and personal friend of my family, having known him since he was about 14 years old.
He steady dated my daughter through High School and went to all the proms and dances with her. He was an accomplished High School athlete (football) for Brookwood High School here in Georgia. She was his sponsor at his Confirmation. We have been blessed to know him.
As writing this, Justin is fighting for his life at a hospital in Germany. He lost his left leg just above the knee, his spleen was removed, lacerated liver, multiple broken ribs, two fractured femurs, punctured lung and fractured spine. With all that, he still is a fighter and refuses to succumb.
This past Friday, he was to be transferred to Walter Reed but unfortunately has developed A.R.D.S and pneumonia. He remains in a medically induced coma in Germany where doctors now have requested his parents come. They are now there as of this past Saturday.
He is now in the hands of the doctors and God.
Thank you, with love!
Thank you very much for the update.
Ours prayers continue for this fine brave young man and his family.

I just read through this thread. :(
Father in Heaven, I believe you are with Justin right now and trust you to fill him with YOUR peace and that you will heal his body in Jesus Name, Amen
collateral damage?? what about Dresden, Germany? Hiroshima??
This is not a war being fought...its a bloodbath. civilization is at stake..
LET THE MILITARY DECIDE HOW TO FIGHT THIS “ WAR “!
May the Angels of the Lord encamp around Justin and may they guide the hands and minds of all the medical staff..giving the healers wisdom and courage and guidance.
Dear Lord, save this wonderful young man and give him full healing so that he may live a life he so deserves!
I didn’t realize you put up a thread too. Thanks.
And prayers that Justin can be med-evacced tonight.
Continued prayers this evening for Justin and all his loved ones.
Praying for this brave young man.
Abba father, surround this young man and his family and friends with Your armor. May they feel Your presence and the calm assurance that they can face this uncertain time with strength, love and peace. In Jesus name Amen
Justin, his family and friends, are all in my prayers tonight. God bless.
Thank you for letting us know. Prayers continue...
Prayers up for Justin.
Sincere prayers sent from a fellow amputee.
Prayers up for the complete healing of Justin.
God bless this young man and speed his recovery....Peace to all his family and friends...
I know another Justin who survived a sniper wound to the head, and is now living a normal life.
God, I pray for this Justin, that he may have the same blessed outcome.
Prayers for his family, too. This is rough, especially if the family is from out of town.
