2/10 Favourite Characters from The Pacific - Jay De L'Eau
Jay was one of my closest friends. He was a Gloucester veteran and knew better than to prowl around the way he had just done. If my finger had applied the last bit of pressure to that trigger, Jay would have died instantly.
It would have been his own fault, but that wouldn’t have mattered to me. My life would have been ruined if I had killed him, even under those circumstances.
