MINDEN, La. (AP) — A 26-year-old Marine from Minden is facing surgery in California after he was injured by a bomb in Afghanistan.

Cpl. Russ Moseley, of the 2nd Battalion 1st Marine Division out of Camp Pendleton, Calif., was injured March 13.

Moseley's father, Clint, told The Times of Shreveport that an improvised explosive device shattered Moseley's right foot, leading to plans for amputation just above the ankle. Moseley's mother, Debbie, says her son is in good spirits, despite the injury.

She said her son had thought of getting out of the Marines, but now is considering remaining to work with its Wounded Warrior Regiment program that helps wounded Marines.
