Staff Sgt. Christopher Fessenden is on duty in Afghanistan now after tours with the Army in Iraq. He has traveled with standard-issue equipment -- weapons, helmet, uniform, boots and so forth -- plus a radio-controlled model truck his brother sent.
The truck is not a toy to him. He says it just saved six soldiers' lives.
"We cannot thank you enough," said Sgt. Fessenden in an email from the front that his brother Ernie, a software engineer in Rochester, Minn., shared with ABC News.

Today is the 67th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion. 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.”
More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end on June 6, the Allies gained a foot- hold in Normandy. The D-Day cost was high -more than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded -- but more than 100,000 Soldiers began the march across Europe to defeat Hitler.
Take a look at photos from the historic battle.

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 19th, 2011) -- A predominantly affluent male crowd gathered on the evening of May 19 at Tesla Motors in Beverly Hills to enjoy beautiful cars, the best vintage whisky and the finest cigars. Appropriately called Cars Bars & Cigars, the evening is a signature Hemancipation event, produced by the company that assists men with luxury lifestyle management. Host Akilah Kamaria, Hemancipation CEO, says "I've hosted several Cars Bars & Cigars and the guests will be mostly men. But women feel very comfortable and have a great time at our events." Held at the very cool Los Angeles offices and showroom for the Tesla Motor Company, Cars Bars Cigars featured cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, complimentary cigars and the opportunity to observe a master cigar roller, and includes a preview of luxury cars, in this case the ultra exotic and sleek Tesla electric Sports Car. Joining Kamaria as hosts are Mark Burton, JD CMAA, Managing Director of Los Angeles Consulting Group, Courtney Norris, Managing Partner of Allure Plus LLC, and Kathleen Tepley, Managing Director, Los Angeles Consulting Group.
