Subject: Three Bronze Men by Chuck Hawkins

This short story Three Bronze Men written by Chuck Hawkins shows readers that soldiers stick together while on the battlefield and also at home. Chuck Hawkins wanted to show readers that the soldiers that fight for our country are like a community and they stick together and watch each others backs. Chuck Hawkins, I believe tells readers about the memories of the Vietnam Memorial positively. Chuck tells readers that the three men of the Vietnam Memorial are always watching and protecting our country. Chuck Hawkins , I believe wrote this short story well and shows other readers that the Vietnam Memorial is there to protect and is continuing to watch over throughout the years. This statue makes me feel protected and safe , even though the Vietnam Memorial wall is a symbol to some people as baby killers. When other people think of the Vietnam Memorial wall of those people that have fought for our country as baby killers it makes me feel ashamed of our country. This short story makes me feel conflicted, as some points I feel protected and proud to live in this country , but at the same time I also feel ashamed that this is what those people that have died fighting for us, as baby killers. The way that Chuck Hawkins wrote this short story was to make readers feel like they are protected by the Vietnam Memorial.
