GOWANDA - In 2007 Spc. Donald Woodard Jr. was on his second deployment to Iraq. While driving a truck into the combat zone to repair a broken-down vehicle their group hit an improvised explosive device. In the moment of the blast the gunner was thrown off the truck. Lt. Tracy Alger, the third man on the truck, was killed. Woodard sustained third-degree burns across most of his body and is in recovery at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas.
