View Quote Some day it'll just end. Everyone will go home, get on with their lives. Tall grass will cover the battlefields. And all the pilots we've lost won't mean a damn thing.
View Quote We don't want you bringing bullets home; we have millions. [Points at the sky] Leave the bullets up there. Let the Germans take them home.
View Quote [After Rawlings flew and landed behind German lines to rescue Lucienne and her family] Use of French military aircraft for personal purposes is strictly forbidden! The report I have says that you repeatedly made flights into and out of German-held territory to fly out several French civilians, while being shot at by both infantry and anti-aircraft cannons. Busy night. I have here papers recommending your court-martial. I have contacted headquarters in Paris and they agree with my recommendation completely, so it won't do you any good to go over my head! [Setting aside the papers, Thenault pins a Croix de Guerre with Bronze Palm on Rawlings' uniform] Congratulations, Rawlings. And don't ever do that again.
View Quote [To one of his pilots, complaining of a German pilot who killed a member of the French squadron after he successfully crash-landed] Reports can be filed. But you want justice? You are the man in the sky. You are the man with the gun.
