William Fells

A few stories about a man named Willie (One man recalls)

Willie carried about 50 M79 rounds in a claymore bag and kept another 80 or so in his rucksack. I remember during one fight that I had not completely fired a magazine when Willie was yelling at me to throw him his rucksack. He had dropped it when the shooting started and taken cover just ahead of me. I fire less than 20 M16 rounds and Willie has already fired over 40 to 50 M79 grenades. That impressed me.

I also remember one day Fells had a little white- black problem. I came
walking up a hill, Fells had just drawn a line in the sand with his boot and said "Any white boy that crosses this line is in trouble, ' (seeing me) and that don't include you Frenchy cuz you ain't one of em".
I had told everybody I was from France, anybody with an i.q above 60
new otherwise. I'm wasn't even sure where France was.
