At the end of the war, and immediately after Rab's death, Dr. Warren looks at Johnny's deformed hand and realizes that he can cut away the scar tissue and give Johnny back the use of his thumb. Although the operation will be painful, Johnny quickly agrees to it and goes for a walk while Dr. Warren readies his supplies.
