: : One officer told another who looks very upset:
: Could we have more of the context?
Lt. Nixon: Hey Dick, wait up!
Lt. Winters: What?
Lt. Nixon: You know that map you found? It had every kraut gun in Normandy on it.
Lt. Winters: Oh, yeah?
Lt. Nixon: Yeah. Here. Don't ever get a cat. What's on your mind?
Lt. Winters: I lost a man today.
Lt. Nixon: Oh.
Lt. Winters: Hall. A John Hall, New Yorker. Got killed today at Brecourt.
Just before Nixon said "Yeah. Here" he also helped Winters to open a can with military food.
May be he refered to contents of the can? :)
