Catch-22 Chapter 35: Milo the Militant
Milo insincerely discusses giving up control of his syndicate to fly more combat missions. Chief White Halfoat has died of pneumonia and Nately volunteers to fly his missions. The lovesick boy wishes to prolong his duty as long as possible so he can stay near Rome and his darling whore. Yossarian is unable to dissuade Nately from staying because Colonel Cathcart raises the number of missions to eighty and sends them all out on an emergency flight. Two planes go down, and Dobbs and Nately are among those killed.
