QUOTES FROM Harve Presnell CHARACTERS

Dave Severance
Looking at it you could believe the sacrifice was not a waste.
Dave Severance
Most guys I knew won't even talk about what happened over there, probably because they're still trying to forget it. They certainly didn't think of themselves as heroes.
