Interview outtakes from THE WAR:
"The General decided, 'Well now we want to have you people form in a parade formation, and we want award you people. Recognize your deed.' And so he said, 'We want the whole regiment in formation.' And when the re, when the General got there and looked at the formation, and he was so disgusted, and he said, 'I asked you to get the whole regiment out there!' And my, our colonel, the lieutenant, he was a lieutenant colonel but at that point I think he was elevated to full colonel, and he just, with tears in his eyes, says 'General,' he says, 'that's all that's left of that particular regiment'. And he says, 'That, that's what we've...you know, that's exactly what you did to us."
