Quote from Scott Pendleton Collins"The hardest thing to do is to walk past the dead. Sometimes I want to look away from them, and sometimes I have to look. Looking at some soldier lying on the ground, his arms stretched out like he is shielding his eyes from the sun, fills me with sorrow and fear."

Quote from Scott Pendleton Collins"I told Bobby Joe that if we get to Paris we could go around and look for girls and he said okay. Than we prayed. I prayed, too."
