Let me tell you something about my time in Vietnam. During my first tour, I discovered anytime you’re in combat – in a shootout – anytime guys get wounded and killed all around you – when you’ve got that going, it sucks. My first tour was one thing, but that second tour with 3/27 was just plain fucking
bad. If you’ve never seen the inside of another human being, you
may not understand. Even after all these years, I can close my eyes right
now and see a buddy walking in front of me step on a booby trap. A white
flash fills my vision, and he comes apart in the middle of it. You want
to learn about human anatomy close up? Join the marines and go to war.
