Over the next several days, the news changed drastically. He sustained injuries{}and broken bones on the majority of his body and was burned from the blast.{}

Devin underwent multiple surgeries at Baghram Airfield Hospital where he remained until Sunday. Devin was transported to Germany on Monday and Christie, was able to talk with his nurse and another connection through a friend who visited with him.
