Fort Drum soldier recovering from IED attack


FORT DRUM — A soldier is recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., after the vehicle he was in was hit by an improvised explosive device July 18.

Spc. Stephen Wagner, 36, of Buffalo sustained an injury to his left leg along with a broken back and broken ribs, according to The Buffalo News.

The attack, which took place in Ghazni City, Afghanistan, was the same one that killed two other soldiers, Sgt. Jose J. Reyes, 24, of San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico, and Sgt. Daniel A. Rodriguez, 28, of Baltimore.

All three were assigned to the 110th Transportation Company, 548th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 10th Sustainment Brigade.

Fort Drum public affairs officials were unable to comment to the Times on Spc. Wagner or his injuries, citing post and military regulations.
