"They pushed - we pushed. Every once in a while, we push hard enough that the light breaks through the clouds...so the world beyond the war glimmers - just out of reach. The war is the world, and the world is the war. But behind every gun sight is a human being. We are those people. We are the jaded, and we are the naive. We are the honorable, and the criminal. We are the bound-for -legend and we are the lost-to-history. We are the knights in the sky, the ghosts in the desert, and the rats in the mud. These are our stories."
