    Ipod saves Soldier's Life

    The back of the Ipod.


    The Armor stopped the bullet. Kevin didn't know he was shot. The iPod was how he found out.
    The full story:
    iPod tells soldier he was shot - the real story
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    My wifes uncle works in a military hospital and told me about this. Its pretty amazing. Kevin Garrad (3rd Infantry Division) was on a street patrol in Iraq (Tikrit I believe) and as he rounded the corner of a building an armed (AK-47) insurgent came from the other side.
    The two of them were within just a few feet of each other when they opened fire. The insurgent was killed and Kevin was hit in the left chest where his IPod was in his jacket pocket. It slowed the bullet down enough that it did not completely penetrate his body armor. Fortunately, Kevin suffered no wound.

    Haha, nice. Reminds me of that story where the dumb boyfriend's .38 went off and was stopped by his girlfriend's curve.
