He go his ammunition, plus an assignment to stay right there and protect the rear of an adjacent storehouse, which he did all night. Next morning, svhcn the nazi; resumed the attack, Kelly look a position at an open window when a machine gunner had been killcc nnd several soldiers wounded There he "delivered continupii aimed and effective fire" until hi rifle locked from overheating whereupon he found another ani kept up his shooting until th same thing happened to that one There wasn't another rifle ban dy, but Ihe enemy was threaten ing to overrun the position, Kelly picked up some 60 SIM mor tar shells, pulled the safety pin and used the shells for grenades killing at least 5 Germans.
