Now I’ve seen for myself what war is really about. It’s about how a farm boy from Iowa hangs onto a machine gun for 8 hours so he can protect his injured buddies, even when he himself is wounded and bleeding. Or how an African-American boy from Charlotte and a white boy from Huston decide they’d rather die together than abandon the other in the mist battle.
War is about men who love their country, but even more than that love one another.
