AP: Barrow man wounded in Iraq

ATLANTA - Two soldiers from a Griffin-based Georgia Army National Guard united were killed Thursday when their Humvee hit a roadside bomb. Two others were wounded, including a Barrow County man.

Staff Sgt. Robert ``Bobby'' Hollar, of Thomaston and Sgt. George R. Draughn of Decatur died in the attack.

``They were both great guys who gave 100 percent,'' said Maj. Larry Deaton of the Echo Troop, 108th Armor Regiment.

Two wounded are Spc. Buddy Mays, of Thomaston, who suffered fractures and a concussion. He will be transported to a hospital in Germy, said Linda Sperry,chairwoman of the Griffin Family Readiness Group.

Sgt. Wyatt New of Bethlehem suffered facial burns but was treated and released, Sperry said.
