Forrest pays respect to the character of his fellow soldiers. The soldiers, marines, airmen, sailors and coasties who serve in America's armed services are often referred to as America's finest. Forrest payed tribute to his fellow soldiers in his own special way. It's humorous the word play of the soldiers names and cities ... and, Forrest couldn't remember where Tex was from. Forrest was proud to serve alongside of some of America's finest young men. America's finest. It takes Gumption to believe in both yourself and our fellow human beings. Forrest found the good in others. It's a silly word play with the names of his fellow soldiers also being the names of cities ... and what state was Tex was from? Let's all be more gump-like ... let's respect our fellow human beings, our coworkers, the people we meet along the way and the people we serve side-by-side with. Let's all live our lives with Gumption.
