San Antonio, Texas --  Sergeant Steve McCoy is being treated for severe burns after his convoy was hit by a roadside bomb Easter Sunday in Iraq.  

It killed four Ft. Stewart soldiers, and put the total American death toll in Iraq over 4,000.   McCoy's wife Tabitha spoke to us from Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio, Texas.

She described her husband as a strong, determined man. McCoy underwent surgery Thursday and is in critical condition-- but doing well.

Both graduated from Colquitt County High School and Tabitha's family still lives there.

The Heritage Church and DeMott Tractor Company in Moultrie are accepting donations to help the family.  Tabitha said her family is grateful for all the prayers.
