Iron Stones

Army Staff Sgt Kyle Keenan deflects a bullit with his head and keeps on keeping on. This Story from Blackanthem.com tells how he took a round to the helmet at point blank range and came out unscathed.

“We went toward where we last saw him, came around the corner of a house, and saw a reed line. We knew we were looking for him in the field there – but when I looked two or three feet away, downward, I saw his face and his eyes, and told
him ‘Get up! Americans!’ and right then, I heard a pop and my head snapped back.”

Seconds later he regained his vision, caught his bearings, leveled his shotgun and fired at the terrorist killing him. Read the whole story, it's quite impressive. This blogger is eternally grateful to those men and women who face these dangers on a daily basis so that we can enjoy our freedom in the "greatest nation on God's green Earth" (H.T.-Michael Medved)

Kyle Keenan hails from Newark, Ohio. He is a scout section leader with the 1st Squadron, 89th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) from Fort Drum, N.Y.

Thank You Kyle and may God continue to bless and keep you!
