CBS Correspondent and UVa graduate Kimberly Dozier arrived at Ramstein Air Force Base in Western Germany today, one day after being critically wounded in a roadside bomb attack in Baghdad. Two other CBS journalist traveling with Dozier were killed in the same attack. One of Dozier's professors says she liked to emerge herself into her stories and the cultures she was reporting on.
"She could, in other words, put herself in the shoes of other cultures, histories, religions, politics. It was an remarkable characteristic," said R.K. Ramazani, UVA Professor Emeritus.
Doctors removed shrapnel from her head yesterday but say she has more extensive injuries to her lower body. They are however cautiously optimistic about her condition.
