    First Lieutenant Jimmy Cross carried letters from a girl named Martha, a junior at Mount Sebastian College in New Jersey. They were not love letters, but Lieutenant Cross was hoping, so he kept them folded in plastic at the bottom of his rucksack. In the late afternoon, after a day's march, he would dig his foxhole, wash his hands under a canteen, unwrap the letters, hold them with the tips of his fingers, and spend the last hour of fight pretending.

He was quiet for a time, as if counting a pulse, then he patted the stomach, almost affectionately, and used Kiowa's hunting hatchet to remove the thumb. Henry Dobbins asked what the moral was. Moral? You know- Moral. Sanders wrapped the thumb in toilet paper and handed it across to Norman Bowker. There was no blood. Smiling, he kicked the boy's head, watched...

But then someone else would grin or flick his eyebrows and say, Roger-dodger, almost cut me a new asshole, almost. There were numerous such poses.

    War is a very interesting subject. Some say that it is inevitably unavoidable while some say that there is absolutely no reason for such a thing. However, there is one aspect of war that remains constant. The battles, in some way, change all of the people who are involved. Soldiers who become emotionally involved in a war risk altering their minds for the rest of their life. These alterations can either help or hinder the person. A good place to find examples of such events is in literature. The...

    The Things They Carried by Tim OBrien: Adult in Adolescence For the young men that fought in the Vietnam War, seeing the death and chaos of intense jungle warfare was more than they could handle.

    The Things They Carried What is it that really helps troops survive war? It is said that faith in humanity and religion are known to fizzle amongst times of wars; therefore almost every man will tell you it was the hope of coming back to loved ones and family. Ask any man that has been to war what it was like, what was going on inside his head, what he felt when he smelled death, what he felt when he caused death. The answer, inevitably, will be one that could never be put to words, an answer th...

    In Timothy Obrien's novel, The Things They Carried, a number of insightful themes are forwarded by the author. One theme in particular interests me the most; the subject area is how people handle their emotions through the avoidance or distortion of reality. Specifically, throughout the novel a number of characters respond to the emotionally charged realities they are confronted with in one of two major ways, distortion or escapism. This pattern, shown throughout the novel, surveys one manner in...
