Generation Kill – “The Cradle of Civilization” Ep.2


Lance Cpl. Harold James Trombley: You got something against marriage, sarge?
Cpl. Josh Ray Person: Brad got dumped.

Sgt. Brad ‘Iceman’ Colbert: My sweetheart since junior high dumps me and marries my best friend since junior high. We’re still all friends. They’re that kind of happy couple that likes to hang photos of themselves all over their goddamn house. Sometimes I just go over there to see my ex-fiancee doing the things that I used to do with her with my best friends. It’s nice having friends.

That part always tugs at my heart.
