KBCI-TV: Wounded Treasure Valley Soldier Now Home

By Michelle DeGrand

A Nampa soldier is home from Iraq, this time for good, after being seriously injured by an Improvised Explosive Device. 22-year-old Army Private Jason Beyer says the war has been rough. He said his unit, the Active Duty 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, and others have suffered many casualties, some losing eight or nine members with seven months still to go in their deployments. As for his brush with death?

"I don't really remember much of what happened, but it was a 500 pound bomb that exploded under the rear of the Humvee, flipped it up in the air, I was ejected," said Beyer.
