Summary : Dum Dum works through his feelings.
Dum Dum Dugan tried not to take anything for granted. Being born and raised in Boston, he learned a lot of things.
When Captain America saved him and the others from Red Skull, he had never been more happy. He was looking forward to getting the hell out of there.
Rogers talked him and the other guys into taking on Hydra. That part was fun, up until Bucky was lost. Rogers took the loss hard.
It made Captain America want Red Skull more then ever. They got him alright, but they lost Rogers. The rest of the guys took it hard.
Dum Dum went to the bar. He had a few beers in Steve Rogers' honor and, for once, paid the tab himself.
