Albany- Private First Class Robert W. Baxter of Cairo was injured in Iraq. He was in Fallujah when Iraqi insurgents launched a rocket propelled grenade on troops. The attack scattered shrapnel through his legs and back.

"We were headed back to camp, and the next thing we knew, we heard a loud bang and seen something coming at us, glowing red. That was the end of it. That's pretty much all I remember up until seeing the medics," explains Baxter.

Robert Baxter will return to Iraq in January.
