Two Marines who survived IED blasts got a look at the equipment that saved their lives. It's installed at the Maintenance Center at Albany's Marine Corps Logistic Base.
Lance Corporal William Chapman, Corporal Christopher A. Gisbrecht and two other Marines from Camp LeJune, North Carolina were honored Friday as part of Warrior Day at the base. They toured the facility and got a chance to meet the workers who make the life saving armor.
While serving in Iraq, Lance Corporal William Chapman and Corporal Christopher A. Gisbrecht survived IED blasts.
Friday they thanked the people that helped save their lives. "If the armor wasn't available when the blast happened, I know I would be dead," said Lance Corporal William Chapman.
"Anytime you do something to save someone it makes you feel good. It also puts me and the crew here in the war as well," said Heavy Mobile Mechanic MCLB Don Bradford.
The celebrations continues Saturday. In the morning they'll have a round of golf at the Flint River Golf Course, and receive free tickets to the Panthers game where they will be honored for their service.
