2.The character i relate to most is Tim. between Tim's intellect and emotion he shows i feel an incredible connection. The way he thinks shows me how true of a person he is. Without Tim this whole story wouldn't be possible so i also appreciate him for that.
3. I would like to point out the section where Tim says people want answers. Tim then tells a story about a group of men and one covers a grenade to save them all but then he claims what if it turned out to be a killer grenade and everybody dies anyway. "Before they die, though, one of the guys says, "The fuck you do that for?" and the jumper says "Story of my life, man," . this story just gave me complete depth and an incredible analysis for the whole story.
4. "The way she quickly fell into habits of the bush. No cosmetics, no fingernail filing. She stopped wearing jewelry, cut her hair short and wrapped it in a dark green bandana." This comes from the chapter Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong. Reading this i quickly fell into a state of mind as the war did nothing but conform this sweet girl and turn her into another soldier. The war took away this girl's life almost and she fell into another statistic. This was incredibly sad to me especially with the finishing of the chapter.
