It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

I presumed that friendships weren’t meant to last; they were meant to be ripped apart.

Some people, though, will surprise you. When you try to push them away, they don’t move. And when you need help, they’ll be there for you, even if you don’t want them to be there.

“Been around the world twice, talked to everyone once. Seen two whales fuck, been to three world fairs. I even know a man in Thailand with a wooden cock. I’ve pushed more peter, more sweeter, and more completer than any other peter pusher around. I’m a hard-bodied, hairy-chested, rootin’, tootin’, shootin’, parachutin’, demolition double cap crimpin’ Frogman. There ain’t nothing I can’t do. No sky too high, no sea too rough, no muff too tough. Learned a lot of lessons in my life. Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet. Drove all kinds of trucks. Two by’s, four by’s, six by’s. Those big motherfuckers that bend and go TSH TSH when you step on the brakes. Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards. I’m a lover. I’m a fighter. I’m a UDT Navy Seal diver. I’ll wine, dine, intertwine, and then sneak out the back door when the refueling is done. If you’re feeling froggy, then you better jump, because this Frogman’s been there, done that, and is going back for more. Cheers boys.”

Air Force pararescuemen ride in the back of a medevac helicopter with the bodies of two U.S. soldiers killed in a roadside bomb attack in Kandahar Province, October 10, 2010. Photographer Guttenfelder describes the scene: “When the pararescue guys were covering the bodies, they only had two flags with them. The wind was shipping through the open window…and the wind caught it and it blew out the window and they lost it. So they only had one flag. (But) one of the pilots had a flag that he kept behind the plate of his flak jacket, one that he’d kept with him for every deployment he’d ever done: Iraq, Afghanistan. He flew over Washington DC with it, his children had kissed it. He took it out and passed it to the back of the helicopter and that was one of the flags they used to cover one of the guys. The family of the soldier who died, who was covered by the donated flag, has reached out to me to ask for a contact for the pilot. They are hoping to give the flag back to him.”
