1. Havermeyer was a lead bombardier who never missed. Yossarian was a lead bombardier who had been demoted because he no longer gave a damn whether he missed or not. He had decided to live forever or die in the attempt, and his only mission each time he went up was to come down alive.

2. Yossarian moved around in front of his desk and told Major Major that he did not want to fly any more combat missions
“Why not?” Major Major asked.

“I’m not ashamed,” Yossarian said. “I’m just afraid.”
