Quote of the Day: Born on the Fourth of July

Mrs. Kovic: [enters the room, beaming] Ronnie, Ronnie, you’re doing the right thing! Communism has to be stopped! It’s God’s will that you go, and I’m proud of you.

[gently pats his shoulder]

Mrs. Kovic: Just be careful, that’s all.

[pause]

Ron Kovic: Don’t you know what it means to me to be a Marine, Dad? Ever since I was a kid I’ve wanted this – I’ve wanted to serve my country – and I want to go. I want to go to Vietnam – and I’ll die there if I have to.
