Garrett Hedlund: Jamie McAllan
Jamie McAllan : You ever miss it sometimes? Being over there. I don't mean being shot at, but sometimes, I actually miss it.
Ronsel Jackson : Yeah, me, too. Over there, I was a liberator. People lined up in the streets waiting for us. Throwing flowers and cheering. And here I'm just another nigger pushing a plow.
Jamie McAllan : You tanker boys ever piss in your helmets?
Ronsel Jackson : [coughs] Plenty of times.
Jamie McAllan : We had a relief tube up in the cockpit. Sometimes it was easier just to go in our flak helmets. But at 20,000 feet that piss freezes solid in less than a minute. It's that cold up there? Shit. I'm talking 20, 30 below. One time we were on this long haul, I pissed in my helmet, I forgot all about it. We were just over the target. I put the helmet back on. We're doing this bombing run, dodgin' enemy flak, and all of a sudden I started feelin' something runnin' down my face.
Ronsel Jackson : [laughs]
Jamie McAllan : Yeah, I thought I was hit.
Jamie McAllan : [in a hole digging]
Henry McAllan : You better get a hurry along. We ain't gonna make it.
[mopping his brow]
Henry McAllan : Oh, we will. We have to.
Henry McAllan : Take a break. Come on. My turn.
Jamie McAllan : "We will. We have to."
Jamie McAllan : [narrating] That was my brother, Henry. Absolutely certain whatever he wanted to happen would.
Jamie McAllan : Men that died that day... they were husbands, fathers. They were good men. A lot better than me.
