"Once I was positioned on a mountain in Anzio. A southerner had just been transferred to my division. He was paired with me. He had never seen true action until this day. I was using the bathroom when suddenly I heard a big, loud sound. My partner was frightened and ran away from the machine gun. I thought an enemy had destroyed the gun because I saw my partner running. He hid inside a cave. I never knew his name. Back then they called it shell-shocked. They had to send him home this way."
