'He's a tough guy': Wounded soldier back home after bomb attack in Afghanistan

A month after he was injured by a suicide bomber, life is returning to normal for Staff Sgt. Marty Brownlee. He's preparing to coach a fastpitch girls' softball team, a hobby he's enjoyed for years. This week, he planned to visit his fellow officers at the Monticello Police Department. He's settled back in with his wife, Autumn, and their five kids, at their home on the Newton/Jasper/Butts county line. And he's counting the days until his buddies with Newnan-based Bravo Co. 2/121 Infantry of the Georgia Army National Guard's 48th Brigade return safely home later this month.
