LITCHFIELD, Minn. (AP) - The mother of one of the five Minnesota National Guard members injured in an attack in Afghanistan says she was able to talk to her son and hear that he’ll be OK.

Minnesota Guard officials say the injured five are members of the 849th Mobility Augmentation Company based in Litchfield. They were hurt during an attack on Forward Operating Base Pasab in Kandahar Province Monday. All are recovering.

Kim Schwich tells Minnesota Public Radio (https://bit.ly/1mKZgtR ) her son Robbie Sheets, of Litchfield, is among the wounded. Schwich says her son told her he was shot in the back and legs in what he said was an ambush. Schwich says she was only able to talk to her son for less than five minutes, but was able to learn that he’ll be OK.
