Guam - Hundreds of families here on Guam are waiting on word on whether any Guam soldiers may have been injured during a suicide bombing attack in Afghanistan. There are 600 hundred of our soldiers deployed to Afghanistan with the Guam Army National Guard's 1-294th Infantry Regiment. They deployed in March.
They first underwent training in the U.S. mainland and then officially took control over the security force mission in key locations throughout Afghanistan on May 6.
We should stress there is no official word from the Guam Guard at this time on whether any of Guam's soldiers were injured in the attack. All we know is the total 15 people were killed which included six Americans and 40 others were wounded when a suicide bomber in a car attacked a convoy of foreign troops two days ago. The attack occurred in the middle of rush hour traffic.
It is described as one of the worst attacks in the Afghan capital in months.
