If anyone asks why he refused to fly, Yossarian is to say that he had been told in confidence that he  would soon return home; he didn't want to take any unnecessary risks. That's all. If Yossarian rejects  the offer, however, he will be court-martialed. Yossarian makes his decision. While leaving the office,  he is met with a further surprise.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
