The chapter that has engaged me the most is how to tell a true war story, because it's interesting how your in the war seeing a very tragic event but you just do not believe it happened. You see something but then when trying to recall this event it may not be the whole truth of what you saw. I wonder why someone can't recall something so vivid in their minds happening right in front of them. The biggest event of this chapter is Curt Lemon dying while out in the woods with another soldier friend, they were goofing off not realizing their surroundings. Curt Lemon stepped on a detonator and died instantly while friends of his saw this happen right in front them.
I have two different types of feelings towards the war. My first thought about war is we obviously need war to make a stand and a point to other countries that want to start stuff with us. We help protect our country so our country can stay together and not get walked on by other countries because it shows a sign of weakness. My second thought about war is that it is sad to go fight over in a foreign country and possibly never returning to your loved ones. If there was another way for our country to fight a war without having Americans do it and losing their life's I would chose that.
