Panasonic Toughbook Saves Paratrooper's Life?

File this in the "really?" category.

We use Toughbooks where I work and they hold up well.  If this story is true (big "if"), I think the paratrooper who's toughbook allegedly took a bullet for him would agree.

Rest is here.

Update:  Popular Mechanics says it happened in April 2003.
