Wartime Bullet Found in Man's Hip
 
This man was shot in the hip in WWII, at age 21. At age 69, an x-ray showed the bullet was still there.

I gotta say...people were tougher back then.

My neighbor took a German rifle bullet in his back at the Battle of the Bulge. In 1944, the surgery to remove it would have left him paralyzed, so he lived with it. 40 years later, it started giving him trouble, but new techniques allowed them to remove it. Now he carries it in his change purse. He is a tough old bird to this day.
