Some more that I gleamed from watching the movie again.

"I was talking to Blackburn the other day...and he asked me, "What changed? Why are we going home?" And I said, "Nothing." But that's not true, you know. I think everything's changed. I know I've changed.

You know, a friend of mine asked me before I got was when we were all shipping out. He asked me: "Why are you going to fight somebody else's war? What, do y'all think you're heroes?

I didn't know what to say at the time...but if he asked me again, I'd say no. I'd say there's no way in hell. Nobody asks to be a hero. It just sometimes turns out that way.

I'll talk to your ma and pa when I get home, okay?"
-SSGT Eversmann to CPL Smith's body at the end of the movie
"Hoot": When I get home people 'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do ya do it man? Why? Just some war junkie?" Ya know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.
-To Eversmann
"Hoot": See you're thinking. Don't. Cuz' Sergeant, you can't control who gets hit or who doesn't or who falls out of a chopper or why. It ain't up to you. It's just war.
-To Eversmann
Now, I don't know exactly who this is quoting, but from what I skimmed from on it's SFC Randy Shugart's voice that says it at the end. I'm guessing it's from a death letter he wrote to his wife. Does anyone know for sure who it's from?

"My love, you are strong and you will do well in life. I love you and my children deeply. Today and tomorrow, let each day grow and grow. Keep smiling and never give up, even when things get you down. So, in closing, my love...tonight, tuck my children in bed warmly. Tell them I love them. Then hug them for me...and give them both a kiss good night for Daddy."
EDIT: Forgot this one too:

[A dying Ruiz speaking to Cpt. Steele]
Lorenzo Ruiz: Don't go back out there without me. I can still do my job.

Yea it's Randy, the movie kinda touched on him and his wife breifly before the mission. At least Im fairly sure, Gordon's character had a bit of an Irish accent

hey sup guys, i believe the letter to his wife at the end was written by Griz Martin, it sounds like his voice, plus he talks about his daughter earlier (when hes drawing the picture) and heres a couple good quotes you might like:

"now hes saying its actually a couple blocks down but if hes seen outside it he'll be shot."

"I'll ****in' shoot him myslef a couple blocks down, tell him i want his skinny ass in front of the damn building, he's not getting payed til he does just that."- Garrison to Col. Harrell.

"You understand the chain of command son?"
"Roger that sir."
"Good, cause if i ever see you undermine it again you'll be cleaning the latrines with your tongue til you cant taste the difference between shit and french fries. Are we clear?"
"Hoo-Ahh sir."-Pilla and Steele.

"Gordy's gone man, I'll be outside, good luck.-Shugart to Durant.
