Interestingly enough, both Kou Uraki and Bernard Wiseman are the same age
at the times of the their respective battles: 19. And, coincidentally or
otherwise, 19 is also the average age of American soldiers in Vietnam,
which fact was basis of a popular song some years ago. (By way of
contrast, the average age of American soldiers in WW2 was 26)

Also, coincidentally or otherwise, both Nina Purpleton and Christina
MacKenzie are also the same age at their respective times: 21.

Had Tomino been scripting these, Kou and Bernie would've been 15 (like
Amuro) and Nina and Chris would've been 17 (like Sayla)....
