U.S. Marine Walks Away From Shot to Helmet in Afghanistan

That's why they wear them: U.S. Marine Walks Away From Shot to Helmet in Afghanistan
Gunnery Sgt. Kevin Shelton, whose job is to keep the Marines stocked with food, water and gear, teased the lance corporal for failing to take care of his helmet.

"I need that damaged-gear statement tonight," Gunnery Sgt. Shelton told Lance Cpl. Koenig. It was understood, however, that Lance Cpl. Koenig would be allowed to keep the helmet as a souvenir.
Gotta love the humor, too.
