For some reason I've never been a big fan of the war, i truly don't like fighting or anything that involve
What does the letter said?
just graduate from college coming home excited. i was young, politically naive, but even at that age the war between the american and Vietnam seems wrong. what is a civil war? what really happened to the USS Maddox that dark night in the Gulf of Tonkin? those were all the questions going through my head.
the graph notice to recruit me for the war. i was so surprise that i didn't want to tell my parent what the letter was about
Man vs self: i was having a discussion with myself in order to know if i was really going to do this or not. i truly despise the word "WAR" and seeing myself as a soldier is totally insane to me. Young man like me shouldn't be force to go in a war they don't care about. it was completely up to them to decide for us.
i was thinking of going to Canada to flew before the officers came to get me. i hate the dirt, tents and mosquitoes. the sight of blood made me sick and i couldn't tolerate authority and i couldn't made the difference between a rifle from a slingshot. I'll completely be useless in the field cause i'm not athletic at all.
this man help me through so much that i can thank him enought. its a memory i'll never forget
in the end, i decided to go to war. not because i wanted to but i didn't want to be a Coward for the rest of my life. i made this decision for my family and the rest that comes with it...
