Don Swaim interview (1975)
Context: Especially in the beginning of the war, the guys who became good soldiers, and good infantry men sort of had to accept that they were dead — that they weren't going to get out of it.

Some did... and in fact most of the men who got in combat did survive it.<!-- 07:05
