Pat Tillman requested for the Army to not be involved in his funeral service through his statement, “ I don’t want them to parade me through the streets” (349). Jade Lane says that Pat was afraid of Bush’s people making a big deal out of his death if something were to happen to him. Pat thought it was unimportant to obtain an image in society. Instead, he just wanted to fight for his country and do something more than playing a sport and sitting on the couch. Pat had his clear goals and was determined to achieve them.
The draft pulled them into it. They did not want to dishonor their fathers, their country and society who told them fighting is honorable. In “The Things They Carried,” it was this ‘dishonor’ that had lead them to enter the war, it was “nothing

It was almost as if they had left their strength with him, to help him on his journey.” Another example is “ So he had to shake the fear of to continue the journey” These examples prove that Salva was determined because he knew that his family would want him to make the trip.
He is much less emotional than Hamlet and Laertes, as he is logical in his action. Both Hamlet and Fortinbras plan to avenge their father’s death from the start of the story ( Lynch 2). They both feel cheated of the crown after their father’s unrightful passing and that their uncles stripped them of their title. Hamlet is a soldier with no real power and seems to be okay with it; he doesn 't want to fight. Yet, Fortinbras is a soldier that takes it into his own hand to have power and loves to fight.
In The Cog, Charles Fritch uses symbolism to show readers that life choices can cause regret in future years. The tough decisions that people make can cause the most fulfilling life or they can wake up one day miserable. James Maxwell was one who wished he had followed his dreams instead of living with a more practical life. He had a very successful life but he wasn’t doing what he had always dreamt of. He was the president of the world but by his standards, that wasn’t enough.
How he can 't wait to see my goddamn medals.” (O’Brien 33). This quote is a key example of this because the father believed that going to war was all about getting medals, but Norman Bowker was totally against the thought. This may not be a positive or negative effect but it really is a change of thought from being in the war. A man’s whole life could be changed from war, and especially in the way they would think from day
It affects how someone feels about things, how their mind works and how they operate in their lives. O’Brien gives a personal example of this change taking place after he becomes a soldier living and fighting in Vietnam. He still does not quite understand why the US became involved with the war in the first place, but he develops a new outlook of it. He is not fighting for whatever reason that the country was giving to civilians, he was fighting for his brothers (fellow soldiers). All of the soldiers want to be there, not for the purpose of fighting people he had never seen in his life before, but to fight with the men that he bonded with and grown to know and love.
Bertrand Russell once said, “War doesn’t determine who’s right, only who’s left.” The Vietnam War was one in particular where soldiers often struggled with who the enemy was. War is too often thought of as something to be won, but this novel reveals it is simply something to be survived, and the shell of a person that is left will not be the same one that walked into battle. That is a jarring reality very prominent in Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers. It is a lesson soldier Richard Perry learns all too well on his journey from innocent young boy to Vietnam veteran.
t all comes down to what you are willing to risk in order to be happy. Chris McCandless grew up in a wealthy family, but when he found out about his dad 's secret, he basically became disillusioned with life and rejected his privileged upbringing. He wanted to find a deeper meaning to life, which is why he went into the wild to live off of the land and be alone with his thoughts and nature just like his hero, Henry David Thoreau had. Even though this was extremely dangerous, to Chris it was worth it because he was willing to risk his life in order to live the way he wanted. I think many people can relate to this because they have dreams they are too afraid to pursue.
In “fighting for the wrong war”, O’Brien becomes a coward, and only in fighting for the right wars will he find his courage. In saying so, the war O’Brien desires to fight is not one of bloodshed and distraught, but that of reason, just, and knowledge. He “detested [others] blind, thoughtless, automatic acquiescence,” and held every individual at war responsible to God. “Politically naive,” but educated of the fundamentals of a war simply to stop Communist, O’Brien held the strong belief that fighting for a war that was undesired and not understood was intolerable. Although he survived the war, “It [was] not a happy ending,” as in the act of going to war, O’Brien depleted what “finited quantities” of courage he possessed.
