What They Found


“They thought the Army was boring, unfeeling, and chicken, and they hated it. They found combat to be ugliness, destruction, and death, and hated it. Anything was better than the blood and carnage, the grime and filth, the impossible demands made on the body – anything, that is, except letting down their buddies.

They also found in combat the closest brotherhood they ever knew. They found selflessness. They found they could love the other guy in their foxhole more than themselves. They found that in war, men who loved life would give their lives for them.”

~Stephen Ambrose, Band of Brothers

    1. I think you’ll enjoy it, it’s an extremely good series. Just be warned that in Episode 9 (I think) there’s some brief sexuality/nudity. My Dad and I just hit the fast-forward button. :)

  1. First off the score is epic. And two that quote in the “Quotable” is a truth when you think about it. Am I right Old Pal? :D
