The wife of an Okaloosa County judge serving with the U.S. Army Reserves in Afghanistan says he was injured in a roadside bomb attack that killed four soldiers.
Brigadier General Patt Maney is a county judge in the First Judicial Circuit in Florida's Panhandle. His wife Caroline says he sustained head, neck and back injuries but is expected to return to duty Tuesday.
Four soldiers were killed Sunday when a massive bomb exploded under a wooden bridge as a convoy of armored Humvees was crossing it.
Caroline Maney says the explosion rocked her husband's Humvee as it was returning to Kabul and damaged its engine compartment.
Patt Maney is the political sector coordinator for the Afghanistan Reconstruction Group at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.
Caroline Maney says her husband is scheduled to return to Fort Walton Beach in October after the Afghan legislative elections next month.
