So it turns out that an iPod didn’t save Kevin Garrad’s life in Iraq, but that his body armor did. That’s a little less interesting (from a gadget blog perspective), but good news nonetheless. The rest of the meme holds true: the soldier got into a firefight with a bad guy and was shot, unbeknownst to him. When he got back to his barracks intending to listen to his iPod and clean his equipment, he noticed that an AK-47 bullet destroyed said iPod. Hence, that picture up there. Apple still wants to send him a replacement one, angels that they are.
