Too serene, he thought, as he caught sight of a trembling bush. "I thinkI just saw that bush move!" he shouted. "If it moves again, shoot it!" his squadleader commanded he bush moved Swan hired. and the hush went downThen hell on earth broke loose.Rocket-propelled grenades, AK-47 fire, mortars, and machine guns engulfedthe exposed Marines.
