Storyboard Text

  • The Things They CarriedGhost Soldiers
  • "I'd remember getting shot and yelling out for a medic and then waiting and waiting and waiting."
  • Where's a medic?
  • Shock
  • "It took the son of a bitch almost ten minutes to work up the nerve to crawl over to me"
  • Rage
  •  "But it made me hate Bobby Jorgenson the way some guys hated the VC, gut hate, the kind of hate that stays with you even in your dreams"
  • Tim was shot in the butt and he needs a medic to tend to his wound, but the no one comes to his aid. 
  • A Plan
  • "After I explained the plan, Azar gave me a long white smile"
  • The new medic, Bobby Jorgenson, finally gets to him and bandages up his wound. By this time, Tim has almost died. 
  • Fear
  • Tim becomes enraged with Jorgenson and plans to get his revenge whenever he sees him again.
  • Forgiveness
  • When Jorgenson is moved to the base Tim is at, Tim makes a plan with another soldier, Azar, to scare him and get his revenge.
  • Tim and Azar scare Jorgenson by rigging up fake ghosts and making rattling sounds. It gets out of hand when Azar refuses to stop scaring him night after night.
  •  "Out beyond the wire, the paddies would seem to swirl and sway; the trees would take human form; clumps of grass would glide through the night like sappers."
  • Jorgenson finds out is was Tim who was spooking him, but he puts it behind him and Tim forgives him too although he doesn't say so. 
  • "We shook hands. Neither of us put much emotion into it and we didn't look at each other's eyes."
