: Hi, I am a high school student reading Tim O'Briens novel "The Things They Carried" which is centered around the Vietnam War. As part of the unit, we are supposed to interview a Vietnam war veteran. I would greatly appreciate any replies from Vietnam War veterans.

: 1. Name:David Klingler
: 2. Age when you entered Vietnam?19
: 3. How did you end up in Vietnam? Were you a volunteer or a draftee?I tried dodging a draft but i was apprehended and taken back to be drafted
: 4. Did you support or oppose the war? For what reasons? i opposed the war because we had nothing to do with going in there
: 5. Describe your postion and ranking? What responsibilities came with your specific position?I was a private 209, i kept faithful to my platoon and i shot the goddamn gooks.
: 6.Describe your first impressions of Vietnamese people, the landscape, and your fellow soldiers? the land was really quite wooded and you couldnt see where you were going until you were told, my crew was pretty nervous about going in because of all the horrible war stories they heard, the vietnamese just yelled thing you couldnt understand so i just shot the hell outta them.
: 7. Did you see combat? If possible, can you describe your experiences?Yes, it was really bloody, i ended up wearing on of my friends after he was hit by a grenade during a firefight.
: 8. Describe what you did to remember your family and friends during your time in Vietnam?my family didnt support anything i did but i did remember them and hoped to see them sometime
: 9. Did you have any good luck charms or superstitions?yes, dont pee into the wind and keep your ammo near you.
: 10. What did you feel when you learned the war was over, that you would be returning home?my tour was over before the war ended and i was relieved when it was over, but i also missed my friends.
: 11. Upon returning to the U.S. and American society did you immediately re-adjust to your life before the war or did you experience difficulties adjusting to American society after the war? I was called a baby killer for months and it was hard to re-adjust to normal life with full meals.
: 12. Have you read "The Things They Carried" If so what did you feel while reading the book? NO, i dont read much, i thought it never did any good for me i had to be street smart and i think i do better with it.
