Linnerooth's best buddy, McNabb, recalls when they were Army psychologists in Baghdad how they'd laugh and find parallels to the plight of Ernest Shackleton, whose ship, Endurance, became trapped in the Antarctic during an early 20th century expedition. The crew ended up on an ice floe, scrambling to survive. (AP Photo/Brock McNabb)
