friend is probably dead and you may throw your life away.

wouldn't be worth it," he said. "Your friend is dead and you are mortally
wounded." "It was worth it, Sir," said the soldier. "What do you mean by
worth it?" responded the Lieutenant. " Your friend is dead." "Yes Sir," the
soldier answered," but it was worth it because when I got to him,he was
still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him say...."Jim...I knew
