Seabee Wounded In Iraq

A Gulfport seabee has been hurt in Iraq. Equipment operator Leo Geibel of NMBC 74 was evacuated from Iraq so he could be treated for his injuries.

He was not hurt in a construction accident, but in some type of insurgent attack on his unit.

Seabee base commander Captain Will McKerrall says the injuries are not life threatening.

Geibel is 21-years-old, and originally from Pennsylvania.
