SIR! NO SIR! -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
I went through my whole tour in Vietnam without a set of dogtags. Anything but thinking about where you were.
When you started thinking about where you were, that's when you started getting in trouble. And that's when I started getting in trouble.
It was when I started really seeing.
I started seeing stuff like I'm seeing right now.
You know, the way we judged our success was through body count.
And most of the time, even though I was part of the command structure, being first a squad leader and then a platoon sergeant, most of the time it's supposed to be my responsibility to do things like check the bodies.
But I never wanted to do that.
That's not what I want to do, or understand I was doing.
