Re: Completely generalInteresting passage from Brute: The Life of Victor Krulak, U.S. Marine, by Robert Coram:

Re: Completely generalFor the Intelligence Characters(I figured it should go here):
"Spend a career in covert ops and you learn a lot about yourself. Will you lie to someone to learn something important? Yes. Will you betray someone to serve a higher cause? Maybe. Will you trade another man's life for your freedom? You don't really know the answer until you face the question."
