“Regardless of points, medals or wounds… each man in the 101st Airborne would be going home. Each of us would be forever connected by our shared experience. And each would have to rejoin the world as best he could. How we lived our lives after the war was as varied as each man.”
Band of Brothers: Favorites Scenes → Men, it’s been a long war, it’s been a tough war. You’ve fought bravely, proudly for your country. You’re a special group. You’ve found in one another a bond that exists only in combat, among brothers. You’ve shared foxholes, held each other in dire moments. You’ve seen death and suffered together. I’m proud to have served with each and every one of you. You all deserve long and happy lives in peace.
SGT. Christenson: Yeah, and there’s another one about him giving cigarettes to twenty German POW’s before killing ‘em.
Ken Webb: He shot twenty POW’s?
Frank Perconte: Well, actually, I heard it was more like thirty.
Band of Brothers: Favorite bromance: Ronald Speirs and Carwood Lipton. ♠• Speirs: I’ve been told there’s always been one man they could count on. Led them into the Bois Jacques, held them together when they had the crap shelled out of them in the woods. Every day he kept their spirits up, kept the men focused, gave ‘em direction… All the things a good combat leader does. You don’t have any idea who I’m talking about, do you?• Lipton: No, sir.• Speirs: Hell, it was you, First Sergeant.
