Catch-22 Chapter 10: Wintergreen
Clevinger's plane has disappeared on a run and he is presumed dead. Yossarian remembers ex-P.F.C. Wintergreen, a former Private First Class who was repeatedly sentenced to dig and fill up holes and busted down to a lower rank each time he went AWOL and was caught.
Sergeant Towser thinks of Mudd, the dead man in Yossarian's tent who was really a replacement pilot killed in combat before he had officially reported for duty. The ambitious Colonel Cathcart has volunteered his overtaxed men for a dangerous mission in Bologna. It is unavoidable since sick-call has been suspended and everyone is expected to fly. Yossarian is sure he will be killed and swears he will not fly to Bologna.
