06/02/2013: Lehrer on the Marines

I learned that Marines never leave their dead and wounded behind, officers always eat last, the U.S. Army is chicken**** in combat, the Navy is worse, and the Air Force is barely even on our side.

– Jim Lehrer, as quoted in
James Bradley (with Ron Powers)
Flags of Our Fathers
(New York: Bantam Books, 2000), pg. 71
