Cairo - A wounded southwest Georgia soldier will be coming home soon.

Twenty-two-year-old Robert Baxter of Cairo is back in the United States. His family is picking him up Tuesday evening at Fort Stewart to bring him back to Cairo.

The military hasn't confirmed his wounds, but he called his family collect saying he was ambushed and hit in his leg by grenade shrapnel. Baxter told his mom that he has no feeling in his right leg from the knee down, but is walking.

He's expected to be in Cairo for two weeks. Baxter is in the 3rd Infantry, 4th Brigade. He was deployed November 22nd.
