He should keep the hood and hang it as a trophy. In the final moments, behind our final redoubt, you will find men standing shoulder to shoulder. They will be all colors and all creeds but they will be as one heart. There is but one heart that all men share. Righteous dudes will find each other , we will have each others back, we will have the same dream to protect (the American Dream). We will face the same same enemies . The bond is deep when you are saving each others life.
