What were soldiers in World War 2 fighting for?

John Hershey(who wrote "Hiroshima" and was a war correspondent) was with some US soldiers at the front lines. He posed the question to a group of soldiers: "What are you fighting for?" There was a long pause of silence. Then one soldier said "I like apple pie". One said something like "I would like a turkey dinner". Then one said "I miss baseball". Each soldier began to express things of home that he longed for. This was their way of expressing the real reason what they were fighting for. Soldiers were not fighting for Country or even their unit. They may have been fighting to help and protect their buddies. But the real reason they fought was that they longed to protect their home and family and return to the American way of life.
