Brave Corporal survives a bullet through helmet
On Dec. 10, Cpl. Ian Gorman, from Pittsburgh, Penn., took a bullet through the front of his helmet while serving in Afghanistan. The bullet scraped the right side of his head and went through his ear.
The padding in his helmet was purchased by “Operation Helmet,” a WWE-sponsored program with the purpose of providing more comfortable padding for the brave men and women serving abroad. To help get helmet pad upgrade kits to these extraordinary individuals, donate here today.
