Sgt. Zack Quotes in The Steel Helmet (1951)
Sgt. Zack Quotes:
Sgt. Tanaka: When I get out of this, I'm gonna join the Air Force. No more beetle-crushing for me!
Sgt. Zack: Aw, be smart. There's nothing like the infantry. If you're in a plane and get hit, what happens? You still gotta fall. There's two strikes against you. If you're on a ship and get hit, you can drown. In a tank, you can fry like an egg. But in the infantry, you get hit and that's it. One or the other, you're dead or alive. But you're on the ground. Get wise, there's nothing like the infantry.
Sgt. Tanaka: Is he kidding?

Pvt. Bronte: They all look alike to me.
Sgt. Zack: Don't you know how to tell the difference, Fat Paul?
Pvt. Bronte: No.
Sgt. Zack: He's South Korean when he's running with you. He's North Korean when he's running AFTER you.
Lt. Driscoll: Well, Sergeant, I told you it was a waste of time.
Sgt. Zack: If I was right all the time I'd be an officer, Lieutenant.
