Kate Hanley's Son Injured in Iraq

Raising Kaine has the story here.

I heard about it from my husband just a few minutes ago. The Secretary of the Commonwealth Kate Hanley's son, Patrick, was wounded in Iraq. He suffered a head injury and has lost an arm. He is expected to arrive in Bethesda late Tuesday.

Patrick Hanley was married for just over a year and was scheduled to return from Iraq in mid-April.

I'm sure I'm one of the many whose thoughts and prayers are with the Hanley family now.

This sucks. I've got two sons and a daughter. The thought of any of them in harm's way and injured like that ... I don't even want to go there.

As a lifelong friend of Pat, I thank you for your prayers during this rough time.

Thank you all for responding. I know that I certainly will pray for the whole family. I've known Kate for years and my heart goes out to her and her loved ones.
