People know what they should do and they have the courage and confidence in each other to do it. … They will do anything even though they feel that life and society have dumped all over them; they can still drive on and fight like demons, march like Jackson, and soldier like the very dickens when they have to … it fills me with inspiration. They are truly the great people of this war … the forgotten civilians who will probably never receive their due for their valor on the fields of battle.

—Major Alexander Hottell, 1969 journal entry during the Vietnam War
