According to O’Brien, Henry Dobbins was one of the more likeable soldiers in the platoon. He was overweight, rather sentimental, and very kind. His one eccentricity was that he kept his girlfriends’ stockings wrapped around his neck for good luck. He credited the stockings with the fact that he never got shot.
