    The book “The Things They carried” by Tim O’Brien was about the Vietnam war. One of the things that is in the book is that there is more than what is just on the surface of the war.

    I enjoyed hearing Lt. Benner’s recollections of his time in the Vietnam War. It was very insightful to hear about what he experienced. Having had a mother who was around college age at the height to the war I have heard stories of the horrors on the war. Mainly of the damaging effects it had on the mental health. Hearing Lt. Benner speak was a change of pace of what I had become accustomed to. When I think of Vietnam I think of extreme violence and cruelty. The media displays the war as a…

    Women and men’s roles in society varied greatly during the Vietnam War. While women avoided the draft, protected from its brutality and tragedies, men were forced from their homes to serve in the ambiguous battles. In O’Brien’s The Things They Carried, women are portrayed as apathetic towards these soldiers. They are the homebound sex, not aware of the world outside their own. On the other hand, men are those who carry the weight of the world, submerged in the pain and politics of war. There…

    The Vietnam was an unusual time for the Americans. It was not really agreed upon by all the citizens to go to war with Vietnam. Not all the people agreed with all the decisions whether it is the tactics that were used or all the deaths that occurred. As Young points out in her article, she talks about how terrible the conditions were and its after effects that it has had on those that served (515). She also discusses how it is hard to imagine what happened. It might be due to the fact of…

    not tens of thousands of troops. With imprecise terminology, Tierney manipulates the information to make his premise compelling. However, upon close examination, the premise can be seen as false and a perfect example of the Hasty Generalization fallacy. Tierney’s second premise is that the US did not “win” in the Korean War, Vietnam War, Iraq War, and Afghanistan War. If Tierney defines winning, or victory, as the US forcing another nation to surrender unconditionally, then his premise could be…
