East Texan Possible Kuwait Grenade Victim

   The grenade attack that killed one army captain and wounded 15 other men in Kuwait City has the family of army private Jason Ragsdale of Avinger frantically listening to news and making calls because that's where their loved one is stationed.

   The storied 101st airborne, was rocked yesterday as allegedly one of their own soldiers threw grenades into tents the soldiers were sleeping in.  The family believes Jason may have been one of the wounded. All day, the family made efforts to go through the Red Cross and military agencies to get some news as to Jason's well being, with no luck. Like many families across the country, they wait and hope their soldier comes back.
