WorldNow: Wounded Soldier Getting Closer to Homecoming

SYLVANIA -- In October 2004, Army Specialist Matthew Drake and fellow soldiers riding in an armored vehicle in Iraq fell victim to a suicide bomber. Only Matthew survived. Now the Sylvania soldier is recovering from severe injuries and getting closer and closer to a homecoming after a groundbreaking on Sunday.

When people learned of the severity of Drake's disability, they turned out to help. For several months now, people have been raising money to build an addition onto the family home in Sylvania. A place where Matthew can live independently, but rely on family when needed. "Matthew has had so much taken away from him....Having to come back home to live is difficult for anybody," said Matthew's mother Lisa Schuster.
