Navedki[uredi]

  • Vse v redu, oni so na naši levi, oni so na naši desni, oni so pred nami, oni so za nami... oni zdaj ne bodo pobegnili.
    All right, they're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us...they can't get away this time.[1]
  • Smo obkoljeni... To poenostavi naše probleme.
    We're surrounded...That simplifies our problems.[2][3]
  • Ko ga je stotnik KOV ZDA vprašal za smer umika, je polkovnik Puller ukazal svojemu tankovskemu poveljniku, da zasede položaje kopenske vojske in mu ukazal: »Če se bodo začeli umikati od te črte samo za en čevelj, hočem, da odprete ogenj na njih.« Nato se je obrnil k stotniku, rekoč: »Ali to odgovori na vaše vprašanje? Tu smo, zato da se borimo.« (Koto-ri, Koreja)
    When an Army captain asked him for the direction of the line of retreat, Col Puller called his Tank Commander, gave them the Army position, and ordered: "If they start to pull back from that line, even one foot, I want you to open fire on them." Turning to the captain, he replied "Does that answer your question? We're here to fight.
