Pfc. Brett Bondurant
(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A vigil is being planned for Army Pfc. Brett Bondurant this weekend.
The 20-year-old from Greendale was badly injured but survived after an improvised explosive device detonated in Afghanistan on September 28.
Friends of the Bondurant family are planning a candlelight vigil at the Dearborn County Courthouse in Lawrenceburg this coming Sunday at 7:30, according to the "Prayers for Brett Bondurant" Facebook page. People attending should bring their own candles.
Prayers will also be said for other members of Bondurant's platoon who were injured or killed in the blast.
Bondurant still has his life, but lost both his legs and was burned in the explosion. He continues to undergo surgery and rehabilitate at Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas.
He received the Purple Heart last week as a symbol of his sacrifice and courage.
