Why I am here

As quoted on Magistra Mater:

[After opinion is asked--and received--about their orders, a subordinate asks Major Whittlesey]

"Why are you here?"

"Life would be a lot simpler if we could choose our duties and obligations. But we can't. We shouldn't. That's why I am here."

~ Major Charles Whittlesey in the DVD Lost Battalion
