Injured East Texas Soldier Leaves Iraq

by Larry Little

"It's been very worrisome, and I just worry about him every day -- every day he's been over there," says Diana Robinson.

Robinson's son, Anthony Buckheit, was serving in Iraq when she received a phone call from the military.

"I got a phone call at 5:30 in the morning saying my son had been hit by an IED in a Bradley. The pictures I got were from the hospital of him with blood all over his face. He had 15 stitches in his face. It split his face open," says Robinson.

The accident gave Diana more reason to worry, but now her worries are over.

"I got a call this morning about 5:30, right after putting my face on, and he said, 'Mom, I am home,' and home right now is in Baumholder, Germany. I can sleep tonight for the first time in months," says Robinson.

Diana says, though her soldier is safe, her thoughts and prayers are with the men and women still in harms way.
