A US Marine from Tahlequah has been injured in Iraq, just two months after he got there.

Lance Corporal Jeffery Hudgens was wounded in combat last week. The military says the 19 year old Marine suffered severe head trauma when shrapnel penetrated his helmet and fractured his skull.

Hudgens is recovering at an Army hospital in the United States.

He is a US Marine assigned to the Broken Arrow TOW Company.
