He ^Htes; "Taking highway 65 ott a rainy day is like taking a plunge in c61d water. You can see the long line of vehicles slipping and slither* ing, stopping and trying to get started again. The motors screech In low, not .because of any particular grade but because 01 the mud and the ruts. The big trucks and prime movers cut huge:ruts, in the soft mud and sometimes a jeep gets caught in one of them and can't move because the ruts are so deep that> the differential rests on the bulge In the middle. When this happens the guys in the vehicle behind pile out and push the jeep free. Then they pile back in and slosh along another 60 feet. Then the fog closes in like pea soup. ' "The rain and the trucks make different kinds of mud along the road. There is the kind with water on the top and the kind that looks like a mass of brown dough, and the kind that looks •pretty good on the surface but turns out to be very soft and a foot thick. But to the GI sitting in the back of the ration truck it's all in the day's work. He picks a pen knife off the floor of the truck and slowly and methodically he begins the job ot scraping the mud off himself." Cpl.

They returned to Gardelegeri, rounded up a large group of civilians, marched them oh the double but to the barn and forced them to look upon the butchery committed by members of their army. Some of the women fainted, others vomited. The next day burgomasters from about 20 nearby village^ were gathered at the spot.
