Maj. Whittlesey:
Lieutenant Leak, fine officer, from Texas...



Capt. McMurtry:
We lost over 60 men to our own fire today. We heave less then 200 able troops left. I don't know how they keep doing it.



Maj. Whittlesey:
Don't sell them short, Captain. Two days ago we had a Chinese working our field-phone,an American-Indian for a runner; they're both dead now but that's not the point. These Italians, Irish, Jews, and Pols, they'd never hire me as an attorney; we wouldn't be seen at the same events. But we will never, in our lives, enjoy the company of finer soldiers or better men then we do tonight.



Capt. McMurtry:
Major, I was with Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders. And I have never served with a finer officer then you. Do you know that your men would do anything, go anywhere for you?



Maj. Whittlesey:
Thank you, George.

What bridge?

How inconsiderate of them, Major.
