OCW steps up for wounded soldier

Through The American Legion’s Operation Comfort Warriors program, Minnesota Department Service Officer Jeremy Wolfsteller recently presented an iPad and iPod to U.S. Army Pvt. Blaine Robinson, who was injured while serving on active duty at Fort Riley, Kan. Robinson suffered traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other extensive internal injuries and was taken to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka, Kan., where he was in the intensive care unit for three weeks.

He was then transferred to Madonna Rehabilitation Center in Lincoln, Neb., for more stabilization before he was transferred to Minneapolis VA Medical Center. Robinson currently is in the polytrauma unit receiving additional rehabilitation and stabilization through TBI services.
