Jimmy Cross however, in “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien, carried pounds of weapons and equipment on his back while he was fighting in the Vietnam War. Despite the differences in their ability to physically survive the war, all soldiers must have mental strength in order to endure the horrors of war.

They trained him to command PT boats that were overhyped by the Navy. Lieutenant Commander John Bulkley used them to “attract aggressive young officers to join the service… [but] Buckley had vastly exaggerated the importance and success of PTs” (87). It also had the potential to take a huge toll on Jack’s health. One sailor said that “riding in a PT was like staying upright on a bucking bronco” (88).
