Were you wounded? yes

Do you remember what it was like - - that is, do you remember whether you

the blood started to run off.

you more than anything else?
There was this particular time when
we went into this barn and saw this
women holding a child and her husband other
two boys lying dead. A German was
dead in the corner. She shot him
and said she never fired any type of
arms in her life It certainly an incident
that I never forgot.
