Richert to be transferrred to San Antonio

Peter Richert, a Kansas National Guard specialist from Hillsboro who was wounded by a roadside bomb Feb. 22 while serving in Iraq, will continue his recovery at San Antonio, Texas.

According to his father, Ed Richert, Peter was expected to be transferred sometime this week, perhaps by Wednesday,  from Walter Reed Army Medical Medical Center in Washington, D.C., to Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston.

Ed Richert said doctors pro?ject that his son?s stay there could be up to six months, depending on the rate of his recovery and rehabilitation.

Richert?s injuries required the amputation of most of a leg. A fellow serviceman, Staff Sgt. David Berry of Wichita, who was riding in the same vehicle, was killed in the blast.
