Injured soldier receives gift
Mother says he’s lucky to be alive
DIXON – Army Spc. Michael Shoemaker Jr. of Eldena says he doesn’t know why everyone was worried after he suffered injuries in an explosion last year.
He seems fine now, but that’s a far cry from the days after the explosion.
On March 29, he was loading an ammunition truck in Kandahar, Afghanistan, when an explosion left him with severe head injuries and hurt his right leg, arm and hand. His vision and hearing also were affected.
