Ron Kovic: [confessing that he had accidentally killed their son in Vietnam] I'm sorry, I just had to come here to tell you. I've been afraid for years to come here and tell you. But, I've lived with this long enough. I can't live with it anymore... I can't bring him back. Forgive me... I want to live. I want to go on with my life. I'm sorry, but that's what happened. That's the way it happened, and I can't change a thing.
Mrs. Wilson: We understand, Ron. We understand the pain you've been going through.
Mr. Wilson: We understand, son, we do understand the way...these things happen... in war.

Jaimie Wilson: What's done is done, sir. I can't ever forgive you... but maybe the Lord can.
