This storyboard does not have a description.
In The Things They Carried, most men physically carried certain things that meant something to them and helped them cope with the war. Other things they carried were their weapons, etc.
The men fighting in the Vietnam War carried many emotional burdens. They saw death all the time and a lot of the men couldn't handle it. Some even resorted to suicide after the war because of these burden.
Physical injuries were also something these men had to carry for the rest of their lives. Most of the men going into war were young and untrained so injuries were common.
The themes of The Things They Carried were the physical and emotional burdens that the soldiers faced and the trauma that comes with fighting in a war.
The conflict in The Things They Carried is the Vietnam War.
Personal Response: I thought the book was decent. It was fun to read in the beginning but towards the end it got boring.
