Local soldier in stable condition after war injury

BOGOTA - U.S. Army Soldier and Red River Valley native Jason Timmons will return home soon after being injured in Afghanistan.

Timmons, of Bogota, reportedly stepped on a land mine. He was last known to be on stable condition.

On Tuesday, an Army Reserve unit from Paris made up of 45 soldiers shipped out for Afghanistan. They were to be joined by dozens of other area troops before traveling overseas.
