Balad, Iraq--Marine 2nd Lt. James Michael Geiger III, lays in the recovery room at the U.S. Air Force Combat Support Hospital in Balad, Iraq, after being operated on for a foot wound caused by a land mine. "Hey gorgeous, I just wanted to let you know I'm on my way to Germany tonight and I'll probably be home soon," Geiger said as he left a voice-mail message for his girlfriend in California via a satellite phone.
