“[The bullet is] in the pages. It went through the pages of the Bible.”
Jessica Weinstein/TN (August 14, 2007)
(Baghdad, Iraq)â€”WGRZ News reports that 22-year-old Army Private First Class Brendan Schweigart of Andover, N.Y. had his Bible tucked in a pocket beneath his bullet proof shield when he was shot with a high powered rifle while on a mission in Iraq. It saved his life by shielding the bullet from his heart.
According to the report, Schweigart told his mother, Kim Scott, that he always carried a Bible into battle. The Bible he was carrying was one he got at boot camp.
“He believes in God. And you know he went to church,” said Schweigart’s mother, Kim Scott.
Reporter Jessica Weinstein asked Scott if the bullet was still in the Bible, and the soldier’s mother replied:
“It’s in the pages. It went through the pages of the Bible.”
Schweigart, who received a Purple Heart, has been released from the hospital and is back on light duty.
