Tech. Sgt. Edmond Rossovich, 41, who is attached to the 940th Air Refueling Wing at Beale Air Force Base, was recovering from shrapnel wounds to his face, said his mother, JoAnn Rossovich of Alta Sierra.

He was driving a gun truck with other members of his unit south of Baghdad when the improvised explosive device went off.
