Just after Battle of the Bulge. a place called Tongras River. Moved back - first place we went back to. Sergeant Shuldi was a radar operator. He was sitting at the radar, tracking a plane that was right around there. So this plane shot, and a 20-millimeter cannon shell went through the side of the radar, hit him on the right side and went right through him and come out the left side. And being a battery aid man, I had to take care of him. And there was no way to take care of him. He was dead the minute it hit him. So those kind of things aren't pleasant to remember.
