I was just a kid when the Army sent me to Vietnam. A lot of things happened and I just couldn’t tell you why. One of them was that I had this necklace with ears strung on it. I was at a bar there one night and a Marine walked up to me and got in my face telling me that the Army was nothing and Green Berets were shit. I didn’t say a word, I just pulled one of the ears off and just stuck it in my mouth and started chewing.
