Eversman: I was talking to Blackburn the other day...and he asked me, you know, what changed? Why are we going home? And I said, "Nothing." That's not true, you know. I think everything's changed. I know I've changed. You know, a friend of mine asked me, before I got here, just right when we were all shipping out, he asked me, "Why are you going to fight somebody else's war? What, do you all think you're heroes?" I didn't know what to say at the time, but...if he asked me again, I'd say no. I'd say there's no way in hell. Because nobody asks to be a hero...it just sometimes turns out that way. (he solemnly places his hand on Smith's chest) I'm gonna talk to your ma and pa when I get home, okay?
