|At the top I mention us setting up on a hill and getting some fire from another hill. It
was god-awful hot. This was the only time they ever let us go out without our

The Stevens mentioned is Clarence Stevens. When they medivaced him he was stiff as
a board. There was one guy holding his head and one his feet and there wasn't a bit

chest to get it going again. I saw him giving him mouth-to-mouth to. I think Stevens
spent some time in the rear after getting back from the hospital, then was sent home.
