    2-They are still felt in my memory.

    1. What do you mean by "fielded"? Experienced soldiers? People with extensive experience in the field?

    2. They live on in my memory. I still feel them in my heart. I still remember them. There are many ways to say this. But "felt in my memory" doesn't feel natural to me.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Problem

    Dear all teacher ,I opened online " Wordnik dictionary" and entered word "fielded",there was written

    Fielded (Adj)-1- Being in field of battle
    2- Engaged in field

    From there ,I used Fielded men,then why is it wrong?

    Below is cut and paste from the mentioned dictionary

    fielded
    DefineRelateListDiscussSeeHearLove
    Definitions
    Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    Being in the field of battle; encamped.
    Wiktionary
    v. simple past tense and past participle of field.
    GNU Webster's 1913
    adj. Engaged in the field; encamped.

    This is a very uncommon use of the word.
