 There is no difference. Sometimes certain soldiers are chosen to lead
 other soldiers. (...) But they never stop being soldiers.
 Because when the stakes are high... When the battle burns... When
 the death seems near... You either fight or your don't. You're either a
 soldier or you're not. (...) I'm a soldier. I fight. That's what i do."
