Profile bust portrait of Leonard Hayworth, tears running down his cheek,

[Corporal machine-gunner Leonard Hayworth upon learning there were no more grenades, ammunition for his machine-gun, reinforcements to take the place of the wounded and dead, or communication from the rear.] "His eyes swung searchingly along the edge of the ridge, then up into the rainy sky. Slow, heavy tears started down across his face. [Korea, September 1950.]" This Is War!, p. 26.
