"Well, you get it from him."
"I can't. I can't reach him. There's too much open space."
"Well, we gotta get some grenades on that machine gun," the lieutenant said, "until we can get our own machine gun set up."
I had carried my launcher and the grenades with me. Blocked by the hedgerow, I couldn't see the enemy position. But Dave, behind me and slightly to the right, could.
I said, "Dave, I'll lob some grenades. You tell me where they land."
I lay on my back and fired the first grenade.
"Too far," he said. "Bring it back a little."
Again I fired over the hedgerow.
"Still too far," he said. "Bring it way back."
I fired again.
