Good story

If this is true, what a great story.

Afghan villagers sheltered a U.S. Navy SEAL wounded in a battle last month with the Taliban until they could get word to American forces to rescue him, a military official said Monday.
An Afghan villager found the SEAL and hid him in his village, the
official said. According to military accounts, Taliban fighters came to the
village and demanded the American be turned over, but villagers refused.
The SEAL wrote a note verifying his identity and location, and a villager carried it
to U.S. forces, the official said. The note indicated to U.S. troops that they
wouldn't be entering into a trap. The commando was rescued July 3.
