WAR IN IRAQ: Injured GF Marine to start therapy - Grand Forks Herald

Ben Lunak may visit hometown in a month

Associated Press

A soldier from Grand Forks who was wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq says he might be returning to his hometown for a visit in about a month.

Marine Lance Cpl. Ben Lunak, 22, was wounded in February when the Humvee in which he was riding drove over a roadside bomb. He had been stationed near Ramadi, west of Baghdad.

Two soldiers were killed in the explosion. Lunak lost a leg and his spleen, and has undergone more than a dozen surgeries.

"We turned a corner and everything just turned black," Lunak said. "I felt myself flipping in the air, and I was waiting to hit the ground so I could react. I looked down and saw my leg was pretty much severed."
