Meet Daniel Infeles. Born in the inner city as a latino, he is considered a minority. He has a brother that is younger than him by a few months named Andrew, but Daniel calls him "Drew" for short.
Unlike his brother Drew, he was never one to sit in a class and learn. His only thought was to become a mechanic and see where his life took him from there.
Money was the only problem. His family was unable to afford any kind of higher education, and so him and his brother were drafted right after graduating high school.
the brothers were separated after boot. Daniel was sent to Khe Sahn Hill with his platoon. 5 months while being stationed at the hill, his brother's unit was sent to help reinforce the hill. The brothers had finally been re-united since Boot Camp.
That night, Charlie begin to rain hell with shells and rockets on the hill. Drew's tent ends up taking a direct hit and he is killed by shrapnel piercing deep into his stomach, and another metal fragment cutting his face open and getting stuck in the brain.
40 years after the Vietnam War, Daniel is single and alone. He comes to visit Drew's grave during holidays. he can't forgive himself for not being able to take care of little brother and suffers from PTSD. Hedrinks every night so that he can drown the sorrows of seeing friends die, and fights against suicide every night as he dreams the screaming, and yelling from the war.
