No one ever expected to make friends in a war zone. People you could tolerate at the very most were what we hoped for. We never thought we’d have true friends, closer than brothers. Well, maybe Captains Pierce and McIntyre did—they seemed like the type to make friends anywhere. But the rest of us were out of their element with a bunch of strangers, at least at first. Time, bad luck, and cramped quarters made us tolerate each other; basic humanity made us friends. The other choice was to hate everyone, but not even Major Burns could do that.
