Holy cow! That's the kid of thing that seems totally fake when it happens in a movie.

No kidding! Coincidentally, I met with a 10th Mountain Division descendant yesterday whose dad had been saved from serious injury by his canteen! I guess Hollywood doesn't exaggerate everything.

There is a stainless steel portable shaving mirror. the kind that could be purchased at the PX, in the collection at the History Colorado 10th Mountain collection. It has a dent in it where it was struck by a bullet. The donor claimed that it was in his shirt pocket and it saved his life.

Wow, how lucky for that soldier! Thank you for telling us about that artifact, Donald. I may have to make a trip over to History Colorado to see if I can view it sometime.

Good to see these artifacts . Thank you
