Carwood Lipton <3 "Lipton became 1st sergeant of the company. (...) He was my mentor; I looked up to him. He was calm and he would discuss any situation you got into. We had brains between us. No quick reactions - he thought things out (....) I trusted him with my life." Bill talking about Lipton p. 86 Brothers in Battle - Best of Friends by Bill Guarnere/Babe Heffron
