Cancer sticks save lives, in Iraq

Parzych and the three Marines got out of the Humvee to talk. Because Parzych couldn't light his cigarette in the wind, he leaned into the back of the Humvee, between two steel doors, just as a car ran into the side of the Humvee, detonating an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in the car.

He was knocked unconscious and woke up with a fractured tibula and two holes in his right calf.

He was the only one who survived the explosion.

That was an amazing story (although you must be talking about the "tibia" or the "fibula").

You could go crazy if you think about this story too much.
