Two American Volunteers Wounded in Ukraine

Manus McCaffrey and Paul Gray, have both been wounded by artillery fire near Orikhiv, Ukraine.

The pair were apparently operating Javelins in Ukraine, targeting Russian armored vehicles. Both were former United States Army.

Gray apparently told reporter Nolan Peterson that: “We were ready for a tank to come down the road when the artillery hit us. A concrete wall protected me but then fell on me. Manus took the hardest blow and shrapnel.”

Manus has suffered severe shrapnel wounds to his head as both have been removed from the battlefield to a Ukrainian military hospital.
