Hey, Taylor. How in the fuck you get here anyway? Why, you look educated.
I volunteered for it.
You did what?
I volunteered. I dropped out of college, and told them I wanted the infantry, combat, and Vietnam.
You volunteered for this shit, man?
You believe that?
You's a crazy fucker, giving up college.
It didn't make much sense. I wasn't learning anything. I figured why should just the poor kids go off to war and the rich kids always get away with it?
Oh, I see. What we got here is a crusader.
Sounds like it.
Shit. You gotta be rich in the first place to think like that. Everybody know the poor are always being fucked over by the rich. Always have, always will.
