"If Paddleford was the medic that was badly hurt in
the attack, and later died, then I can definitely state, the attack was
at FSB Bastogne. I believe I have photos -- somewhere -- of FSB
Bastogne the day after the attack, as I was sent out there to take
reports of what was lost, and to reimburse guys for things they lost
(got destroyed) in the attack.
I also visited the Battery CO who was wounded. Captain _____ ... I
can't recall his name. My recollection is that he was a good guy.
Visiting Captain _____ in the hospital was a sobering experience.
Seeing him bandaged up -- a contemporary; a guy that I knew -- made me
realize that none of us was indestructible. Prior to visiting Captain
______ in the hospital, I was certain that I was made of steel, and
nothing bad could happen to me."
