The hometown of a soldier injured in Afghanistan is getting behind his recovery efforts.
The VFW in Charlevoix is hosting a benefit spaghetti dinner for staff Sgt. Troy Drebenstedt right now at their hall.
An IED exploded while Drebenstedt was on foot patrol.
He suffered wounds to his head and all four limbs, this is his second tour in Afghanistan.
Money gathered during the benefit dinner will go into a special account to help his family cover expenses during his recovery in Texas.
The dinner is going on until 8:00 tonight.
