Our War: Belleville man still has the bullet that nearly killed him

Paul Blaes of Belleville has a 65-year-old piece of twisted, dark metal he saved from his time in Europe during World War II. He held the heavy, flattened bullet in his 86-year-old hands and remembered the day he almost didn't come home. "If this would have hit me, I would have been gone," he said.
