The Jawa Report is embedding two videos of news reports and interviews with U.S. Army Private First Class Brendan Schweigart and his mother. It’s LiveLeak, so I can’t embed it myself, but head on over to the link.
Brendan carried the Bible in a pocket under his bullet-proof shield. After a sniper ambush in Iraq, he received non-life threatening wounds and a souvenir – a bloodied sniper bullet lodged in his Bible.

Apart from the bullet that was stopped, other hit his arm and chest and passed through without causing fatal injuries.
The videos are mostly phone interviews set to still photographs, but there is the gem above.
I’ll end with a fitting Bible quote:
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. – Ephesians 6:13-17
