One of Jim’s fellow infantryman in World War I. Eric is a boyish soldier who hardly seems old enough to be in the military. An orphan, he latches onto Clancy Parkett early on, following him wherever he goes. Eric gets his legs blown off in the same explosion that kills Clancy, but manages to survive. When Jim visits him in the hospital, he asks who will take care of him when he returns from the war—a question Jim can’t quite answer.
