We report on the current status of a study of a selected number of unidentified EGRET gamma-ray sources near the Galactic plane which do not have potential blazar identifications. Several of these sources have shown dramatic variability. To date, no identification has resulted from radio, optical, or X-ray observations. We suspect that these sources are a new class of Galactic GeV gamma-ray emitters in addition to isolated pulsars.

We will present results of X-ray observations of the field of the most prominent of these gamma-ray sources, GRO J1838-04.
