"It'd drive me crazy to be with a bunch of guys…marching with them and all…and I couldn't even stand looking at the back of the guy's neck in front of me."

C

"…You have to stay in the Army for so goddam long."

D

“The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.”

"If you do something too good, then, after a while, if you don't watch it, you start showing off. And then you're not as good any more.”
