January 31, 1968 Dear Diary, I’m writing to you because I just got the word that 19 Vietcong guerillas attacked South Vietnam’s embassy. As the President of the United States, I am very concerned about South Vietnam and all the Americans there at this time. Additionally, I am worried about how this will be portrayed to the Americans on the homefront through the media. I understand that South Vietnam and the Vietcong were in a “cease-fire” or a time where both sides agree to stop the fighting for a little while. I have been told that the Vietcong had hidden weapons throughout Saigon and attacked the second night of Tet, the Vietnamese New Year.
War veterans have been misunderstood and mistreated since the days of the ancient Greeks. Other men tried to steal the wives of soldiers back in ancient Greece, and America’s Vietnam veterans returned and were labeled as “baby killers”. The experience of war and serving in the military changes veterans. The only people who have experienced what they have are other soldiers. They feel like no one understands what they have been through when they return home.
There, Fisher discovered his love of language. “Words were my paints, thoughts my palette, paper my canvas, and the world itself my ever-changing subject” (Fisher, 2001, p. 291) With his new appreciation for words, Fisher was able to deal with his pent up anger from his past in a constructive way for a change by writing poetry for fellow sailors to purchase for their loved ones at home. Before his discovery of the power of language, he would continuously get into fights with the other sailors. After leaving the Navy, Fisher was a changed man. He was much less shy, more confident, no longer felt useless and worthless.

The stories are told in a first person point of view and are told by writing about it.

Ponyboy vouches for his brother’s character stating that Darry “had been a real popular guy in school; he was captain of the football team and he had been voted Boy of the year”, but goes on to lament that at this point in the story he “didn’t have time between jobs to even think about college”(16). Given Darry’s accomplishments, it is clear that he would have been a fantastic student and would have made his parents proud. Coming from a working class background, he would very likely have been the first person in his family to go to college, serving a role model for his younger brothers. Despite his parent 's death, Darry could have forgone his responsibilities, since he is an adult and still attend college, leaving his brothers to survive on their own in foster care, or a boys’ home. However, he does not take this option and instead, Darry assumes

When someone is incompetent, it takes him back to what he experienced in war. So if someone expresses incompetance he acts as if he is, once again, in times of war. On another occasion Bear: “confused a Vietnamese co-worker at the post office with the Vietnamese enemy. He grabbed the man and told him he was going to cut his throat just like his comrades.” (Shay pg.
Soldiers receiving a draft letter for war is typically a very hard and stressful time in their lives, especially the draft for Vietnam, the only draft America has had so far. Most of the men being drafted were young and unexperienced in war, making them hate it even more. They were taken and dropped into some of the worst circumstances the U.S. military has ever seen and expected to fight alongside people they had never even met before. As the war went on, the platoon members would bond, and have to watch their new friends get injured or die right in front of them, and wonder why they didn’t die as well. The harshness of the war made the soldiers look for any kind of escape from reality or way to make war easier, and they found drugs to be
