  • Personal Narrative-Down, But Not Out !

    “Down, But Not Out.” “There it is Privates!” Drill Sergeant Gonzales yelled. As we all rounded the narrow and winding road through the Ozark Mountains, my heart began to race. All 250 of us slowed down to form a formation in front of what appeared to be the biggest climb we had seen and were not expecting to see for the next few weeks.

    of combat experience and the perception that he avoided combat patrols. He was also not liked by the men who were fond of their original platoon sergeant, SSG Miller.

Fenlason was also hard on certain individuals, which led him not being well liked by his soldiers. He showed personal courage when he stood up to Yribe, one of the…
