Sergeant Kelsey was knocked to the ground, and for a short period of time lost his hearing. He suffered injuries to his body from shrapnel, PTSD, and injuries to left elbow, left knee, and right shoulder. Sergeant Kelsey has also been diagnosed with tinnitus. After treatment, rather than return to the US, Kelsey remained with his platoon. He was honorably discharged in December of 2010.
