“Running, one might say, is basically an absurd pastime upon which to be exhausting ourselves. But if you can find meaning in the kind of running you have to do to stay on this team, chances are you will be able to find meaning in another absurd pastime: Life.”

Donald Sutherland as Bill Bowerman in Without Limits, 1998

“[Janapatrick] Barroga, who had arrived at [Combat Outpost] Keating only two days earlier and who had never before been in combat, turned to him with a question. ‘Hey Sergeant,’ Barroga asked, ‘are these attacks always this bad?’”

“‘No dude, not at all,’ Breeding declared emphatically, ‘they have never been this bad.’”

“‘Well, is everything gonna be OK?’ asked Barroga, unable to connect the dots.”

“In his eighteen years in the Army, John Breeding had never been a dispenser of bullshit. He saw no need to change now. ‘I don't know if we're going to get out of this one,’ he replied, looking Barroga in the eye, ‘all I can tell you is that, if we go, we're taking some of these Mother Fucker's with us.’”

Red Platoon: A True Story of American Valor

“One morning in May, on the front page of The New York Times, there was a photograph of a soldier firing his rifle at Taliban attackers from the ramparts of Fire Base Restrepo in Afghanastan. An Associated Press photographer had captured Specialist Zachary Boyd defending his Fire Base dressed in helmet, body armor, flip flops, and pink boxer shorts with little red hearts in which were printed, ‘I Love New York’. I burst out laughing. Any soldier who goes into battle against the Taliban in pink boxers and flip flops has a special kind of courage, I said publicly. What an incredible innovation in psychological warfare. I loved that picture so much that an enlargement hung on the wall outside my office for two years.”
