During a joint operation in western Afghanistan today, initial reports indicate more than 25 ISAF and Afghan national security force members were wounded. Members of the joint force were searching for two missing U.S. Army soldiers.
The wounded service members were initially treated on the scene and subsequently flown to an ISAF medical facility for further treatment.
"We are committed to taking every measure possible to rescue or recover our missing service members. We continue to do everything we can to find them," said U.S. Navy Capt. Jane Campbell, IJC spokesperson.
Operations are ongoing, and further information will be released when it is appropriate.
