Mike? What’s the pool on me up to right now? What’s it up to? What is it three hundred
dollars — is that it? Three hundred? I’m a school teacher. I teach English Composition in this little town called
Addley, Pennsylvania. The last eleven years, I’ve been at Thomas Alva Edison High School. I was coach of
the baseball team in the spring time. I’ll be doggone. Back home when I tell people what I do for a living, they think, well, that, that figures. But
over here its a big, a big mystery. So I guess I’ve changed some. Sometimes I wonder if I’ve changed so much
my wife is even gonna to recognize me whenever it is I get back to her and how I’ll ever be able to tell her
about days like today. Ryan — I don’t know anything about Ryan. I don’t care. Man means nothin’ to me. It’s just a name. But if– you know– if going to Ramel and finding him so he can go home, if that earns me the right to get back to
my wife — well, then– then that’s my mission. You wanna leave? You wanna go off and fight the war? Alright. Alright, I won’t stop you. I’ll even put in the
paperwork. I just know that every man I kill the farther away from home I feel.
