This Fellow Deserves A New And Bigger IPOD

This cool photo and story was found on Flicker the photo sharing website. I copied the information accompanying this photograph. The good news is that a young man is safe tonight, but Apple needs to replace his Ipod without charge for the free advertising.

“Photos sent to me by my friend Danny with this caption:
My wife’s uncle works in a military hospital and told me about this. It’s 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.”
