Not Even War Can Stop a Pelican Case
Pelican Case Survives War
Staff Sergeant Owen Rice, a U.S. Army combat engineer, was a passenger in the front seat of a military vehicle speeding through a war zone when his greatest fear struck.

The desert road exploded directly beneath him, sending smoke and a terrible jolt through his four-wheel-drive truck, which quickly caught fire. He immediately knew that his crew had hit an improvised explosive device (IED). Soon he would learn the bomb had ripped apart the entire engine compartment, literally stopping the vehicle in its tracks.

The Army veteran's first concern was for his life and the lives of the other soldiers in the vehicle. Once he confirmed that everyone had survived, he felt something pressed tight between his boots. It was his 1150 Pelican case. The truck was devastated, but the case had survived the bomb, even though it was at the epicenter of the violence.

Sgt. Rice confirmed this frightening incident by taking photos of the conflagration with his camera — the one that was protected by the 1150 Pelican case.

Proud? That's a small word to describe our feelings. Relieved is a bigger word. Astounded is even better, because we still can hardly believe that this brave American who has done so much to protect this country would think of Pelican after a life-threatening explosion.

Yet this is what we prize: Courage, excellence, durability — physical and emotional — as we endure the rugged world that confronts us all.

We often repeat our specs because civilians have every right to know what we offer.
