• - Lt. Gen. Eugene Irwin: I don't think so. You know where saluting comes from?
    - Cpl. Ramon Aguilar: No, sir.
    - Lt. Gen. Eugene Irwin: It comes from medieval times. Two knights would approach each other on horseback. They would raise their visors and show their faces. It's like they're saying, "This is who I am. I'm not the enemy and I'm not afraid". A salute's about respect, son. Respect for yourself, the service and the flag.

    Robert Redford - Lt. Gen. Eugene Irwin
    Clifton Collins Jr. - Cpl. Ramon Aguilar
