After Action Report
The 1st sectionreached the outskirts of the town at 1315 hours and occupied the church and house due south of the church at 687882, where they became engaged with the enemy at point-blank range. Although three men were killed almost immediately and two seriously wounded, these building were occupied by our men and held. A heavy counterattack developed on all sides of the entire company at this time, but was beaten off successfully. This engagement necessitated a consolidation of the company in an oval positions at the enemy completely encircled us, and no front could be fixed. In order to contain the ground that had been gained, no further effort was made to advance, and the company dug in and awaited the 18th Infantry to pass through and relieve the pressure on us.
