"I made it to protect the motherland. And then they spread the weapon [around the world] - not because I wanted them to. Not at my choice.
Then it was like a genie out of the bottle and it began to walk all on its own and in directions I did not want."

Ernest "Ernie" Taylor Pyle
August 3, 1900 – April 18, 1945

“All the rest of us, you and me and even the thousands of soldiers behind the lines in Africa, we wanted terribly yet only academically for the war to be over. The front-line soldier wanted it to be terminated by the physical process of his destroying enough Germans to end it. He was truly at war. The rest of us, no matter how hard we worked, were not. Say what you will, nothing can make a complete soldier except battle experience.”
