A Le Mars family’s son is being treated in Texas after he was seriously injured in a car-bombing in Baghdad last week. Illinois National Guard private first-class Dustin Hill is the son of Leon and Sherry Hill of Le Mars and Liz and Dave Kelm of Davenport. Hill was part of “Fox Company” which had stopped to investigate an abandoned vehicle while patrolling near the “Green Zone” in Baghdad. According to news reports, while they were stopped, the unit stopped all civilian traffic, too. A military convoy was passing and a civilian car pulled in behind them and detonated. Hill is being treated at Brooks Medical Center at Fort Sam Hood in San Antonio, Texas.
