"Hey, I know how you feel, man. I think talking to other guys, especially those we consider our friends, how much they mean to us is something that we're scared of doing, for all the reasons that other people have said. But I think it's…"

"The question is not how we inform others. They know. The question is what are the public willing to do about it. Unless you're ready to let the Marines and Naval aviators off the leash, you may as well forget it. ISIS understands power and…"
