We had to wear Kevlar and helmets when standing watch on Guam over the New Years eve. Bullets rained down from all the locals firing into the air at midnight. One round lodged itself in the engine block of my supervisor's car. We ask the command if that qualified us for a Combat Action Ribbon, they said no . . . :(
