Search for a Hero By Thomas Hal Phillips xxvn I'J'HE next day, Bert rode with me i to the hospital ship. While we •waited in line at the gangway I gave him two letters to mail, one lor home and one for Meb They . were not sealed because they K would have to be censored. "When you're gone," he said -I think I'll read Meb's letter lien I'll go back to the hospital, try to figure out what goes with you and Meb and all the world-and wai for another LCI and Italy " I knew he wanted to say 'something he would never say, even it 1 didn't know what it wa» He stood there looking out across the harbor where the masts emerged from the dark, oily water A few pigeons came near us. not daring anything, but unafraid, the way they were that first day in Petj- ville. t watched them and » watched I was no longer In * hurry to be moved, to be aboard ship at all. "You're next," Bert said. We saw the attendants coming along the gangway for me. I eould not look back as they earned me along the gangway. We entered the elevator and went up lo A deck, where they left me for * minute. I could see Bert below, searching the ship; the pigeons were pecking almost at his feet. Finally he caught sight of me. By semaphore—his bandaged hand a neat bundle of white—he signaled, •'Tell my old man I'm a hero." I lifted my hand as much as I MtiW He waved and turned, t ,elt that I had been destroyed too, like everybody else he had known m that strange land. 1 watched him go up' thai street which commenced at the quay and wound like a cattle path to the summit of the hill. By the way he held his injured hand he appeared to carry something heavy. I remembered «|W man Sloane once pointing to the picture of a doughboy that -•—; ovtr his ticket window *nd saying, "He taken me back to sale- ty when death had aholt ol both legs." But *>on I lost him. somewhere behind those gray buildings which were so vivid in my dreams, • • • Y^E landed in Norfolk fn the early morning, and th* only familiar sight to me wai the lin of flag! (from the small craft «« the ships) caugh'. in the March wind. By lati afternoon our hospital Pullman was in the mountains of North Carolina. That night we reached Middle Hills, • sm»l] collection of building on t mountain shelf. As we moved along the tracks, above the town which was flooded with'moonlfght, I kept expecting the sound of cowbells or of fox horns, or of something that would let u* know the war was far behind. When we wer« bedded hi the hospital—two to a room in the midst of much spotlessness—we were served huge dishes of Ice cream: that *-as routine. For some of us there was mall. I had an old letter from Meb, one which had no doubt made the rounds to Petiville. She wrote that William had asked her to come to Tech lor the weekend of the Blue-White game which marked the end of spring training; she might not go, as she had planned lo visit her mother at Easter. She hoped he would nol be mad with her. It was all his fault, I thought. He had so messed up things ihat I didn't even know how I felt, except that it was something like' he just wants to make her think he's a hero, and he will, and she will fall for it, like everybody else. I remembered that Bert had once said, "We're all in the middle of a wild search for heroes." I had said, 'You're not, are you?" He had said, "Yes, I'm searching too." 'And you never found one?" 1 had asked. He had said, "No, but I will, when I flnd myself." _ 1 was almost afraid lo opet Mama's letter, which bore a thre* day-old postmark. For a few minutes I talked with my roommate, i soldier who had been there i week. As I talkeo, 1 ripped thl envelope and stole a glance at the heading. It began, "Thank th< Lord you are alive again." 1 laughed, for I was certain that ir Mama's eyes the whole matter wai not an error at »U, but • miracle I was once dead but now I lived The soldier motioned for me to it ahead and read.

The room was gray almost dark; but I saw him shake his lead—that was all. I thought of Vleb; she was probably at Fort Benning and did.not have my new address. 1 thought of her alone in her room in that huge gray house when Foster brought her th« telegram, or the news anyway.
