"Bein' a soldier is not hard. If it was, soldiers would not be able to do it."

"By now we'd come to look at all replacements as dead men who temporarily had the use of their arms and legs. They came and went so fast and so regularly that sometimes we didn't even learn their names. Truth is, after a while, we sort of avoided gettin' to know them."
— Zab, The Big Red One
