We were given an engineering mission clearing the road from Immendorf to Puffendorf of mines and debris. When my group reached Immendorf we all piled off the jeep and carried the mine detection into an alley. I saw Silvette [ ___ ___ ___ ] and I asked him what had happened. ᢲielson just got killed,襠said. I turned around and there he was. I got a sudden tight feeling around my heart. Gabby had just got married a few months ago at Dix. Everybody liked Gabby.
