"When I was at headquarters recuperating from my third attack and my chum came to me. He asked if he could come to visit me because we had been quite close. So all the dinner supplies were being picked up by their unit from headquarters. So he came and visited with me and we had prayer together and then his unit was gone. Within two days I received word that the day after he left he had been hit by a shell."
