OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Five Oklahoma Army National Guard soldiers have been injured in Iraq by an improvised explosive device.

The soldiers are members of the 1345th Transportation Company based in Midwest City and Enid. Colonel Pat Scully, spokesman for the guard, says they were injured shortly after midnight Wednesday while operating near the Mosul area in northern Iraq.

They were identified as Specialist Mathew Herndon of Kingston, Sergeant Kelsey Birdsall of Marietta, Specialist Christon Stone of Midwest City, Sergeant Larhonda Johnson of Marietta and Specialist Jacob McNeely of Gainesville, Texas.

Johnson and McNeely were treated for minor injuries and returned to duty. Injuries to the other three were more extensive. But Scully says they're expected to fully recover.
