Carwood Lipton <3 "Lipton became 1st sergeant of the company. (...) He was my mentor; I looked up to him. He was calm and he would discuss any situation you got into. We had brains between us. No quick reactions - he thought things out (....) I trusted him with my life." Bill talking about Lipton p. 86 Brothers in Battle - Best of Friends by Bill Guarnere/Babe Heffron

Warren 'Skip' Muck (1922-1945) "Skip was the real deal: didn't have a phony bone in his body. Unassuming and yet had a personality that drew people to him like cold hands to a fire. He was the barracks peacekeeper on occasion. Not the guy who demanded to be in the spotlight but probably the best-liked man in the company. A guy who would make each of us feel as if he were his best friend." - p.47-48 Easy Company Soldier by Don Malarkey
