Surviving a Sniper

Fred Mason survived Iwo Jima with a bullet hole in his pack.


“I got pinned down by a sniper… and the only thing that was sticking up was my pack, which was above ground. I could feel the impact of the bullet hitting my pack”. Fred Mason, a US Marine, thought his young life would end that day as he hid in the sand on Iwo Jima. “I told the Lord I would never get out of this thing alive without His help. It wasn’t easy, but I survived.” Fred like many others has sacrificed all for his country. We want to send Fred your gratitude, so please comment below!
