Caption: Seabee Bill Murray was working at a Marine Corps base when a 122mm Viet Cong rocket struck. Murray remembered "The big piece came tearing through the roof of my hut, and I jumped out of my rack to look at it...When I got back, I saw that the smaller piece had torn through my rack. I call the big one the one that saved me and the small one that one that tried to kill me." (On loan from Bill Murray)
