Chaplain - Vietnam: How are you?
Ron Kovic: (weakly) Tell them - they have to operate on me. There's something wrong with me.
Chaplain - Vietnam: The doctors are real busy right now. There's a lot of wounded here today. No time for anything except trying to stay alive, so you got to try and stay alive, okay? You hear me? Try and stay alive.
Chaplain - Vietnam: I've come to give you your last rites. Are you ready?
Ron Kovic: (weakly) Yeah.
Chaplain - Vietnam: I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. You brught nothing into this world, and it is certain that you will take nothing out of it. The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
