Canadian troops engaged Taliban militants in two separate firefights over the weekend in southern Afghanistan.
Although there were no Canadian casualties, the amoured vehicle the troops were driving in bears bullet marks from the machine-gun firefight.
Maj. Todd Strickland, the deputy commander of Canada's battle group in southern Afghanistan, said Sunday the soldiers were very lucky.
"A soldier's luck is a funny thing -- sometimes you got it, sometimes you don't," Strickland said. "Yesterday we were lucky."
