I talked with him just before he went on patrol

I was Doc Williams with K3/1 and was talking with Dennis not long before him and the 3 other Marines went to perform a new method of sending men out at night with minimal supplies:no helmet,1 canteen and as much ammo,grenades that they could carry.I actually volunteered to go out on one of these “killer teams “,but was refused because I was a Corpsman.
I will never forget his last words to me, he said he didn’t have a “good feeling about the mission”. That was the last time I’d seen him. After the patrol failed to return we mounted up a full-scale battalion sweep taking up all new gravesAnd heavily questioning all the locals about her man.
