"You mustn't think of these people as just some sort of unfortunates . . . They are not — they are one of you. I saw a major general, one of the finest athletes of his time, definitely break — break because he could no longer sustain the agonies of combat. He could not talk to me without shaking, and he had to go home. This cannot be dismissed as not touching you personally." -- General Dwight D. "Ike" Eisenhower, U.S. president and five-star Army general.
