Subject: mines

im required by my teacher that i reflect upon 3 of these stories and as one i choose mines. Mines showed me they way how tense the Vietnam war was. There were a lot of things that really stood out to me. Like how you managed to help out some of your other comrades even when you your self was injured. That requires a lot of will power and the will to survive. When you were talking about the lift off onto the helicopter and how that you couldnít feel anything, that mustíve been spine tingling.
Anything could happen. When you notice that youíre numb thatís usually not a good sign but yet you kept calm. To think this all came from a single mine. All of a sudden youíre walking and then youíre 10 feet away from the place you were originally standing. I loved the part about how when the first copter came you helped your companions aboard even though you were hurt also. Like you saidĒhey im hurt tooĒ.
Even then you had your buddies on your mind. Even though the second helicopter landed down just seconds after, I can only imagine how long that mustíve felt to you. It seems so painful physically both mentally in this case. This story is seems so painful to think about. Its something only in your dreams you would think could happen. Like the part about the holes in your chest. Iím guessing that they came from the shards from the mine. That hurts just thinking about it. I donít understand how anyone at anytime could with stand that while helping. When you said the medic was yelling at you so that you would stay awake it reminded me of this book that we read this year in school. Its called The things they carried. . It really showed how close together the men were in Vietnam. They were almost like brother. Everyone was dedicated not only to themselves but to there friends also
