America as a country lost that war. The soldiers who fought and were able to return to their homes and families did not lose. They survived, and one way they did that was the mindset represented in the quote above.
Winning and losing doesn't really enter in to what was being stated above.
I thought that the whole point of a war was to win it. At least that's what I was told when I was in the army.
If all you want to do is 'survive' then don't get involved in the first place; surrender, run away, go to Oxford University for a couple of years, join the Air National Guard as a pilot etc etc etc
