"The poor bastards.."

Some words to remember from Bill Whittle on this Fourth of July:

..his last words was a quote lifted from a medic in Bastogne durign the Battle of the Bulge:
At the hospital set up in the town, "I looked around and never saw so many wounded men. I called a medic over and said, 'Hey, how come you got so many wounded people around here? Aren't we evacuating anybody?' "

"Haven't you heard?" the medic replied. "I haven't heard a damn thing." "They've got us surrounded—the poor bastards."
