Where Do We Get Such Men?

That was the famous question that Fredric March, playing the character of Admiral Tarrant, asks at the end of "The Bridges at Toko-Ri," the 1954 Korean War epic starring William Holden, Grace Kelly, and Mickey Rooney. The picture above shows Holden and Rooney, about to make The Ultimate Sacrfice.

Where, indeed, do we get such men? What, or who, were they fighting for in their last moments. Was it their country? Their loved ones back home? Each other? We'll never know, of course, at least here on this earth. Only Eternity knows the answer.
