"I was made 'Medic' the day 'Ski'got killed. He was a Sgt. We had run out of medics and the last one we had was getting on a chopper that day to go home. I volunteered for the job, I really didn't expect to run into any real problems. We were on top of a hill getting re-supplied with c-rations. About an hour after we left the hill, we came under heavy mortar fire. Me and some real medic from a unit close by, went to him. He had been hit in the head and along his left side. A medivac got him out, I believe he had died already; I was told he died later. It was later reported as 'Friendly Fire'."
