Were you scared in Vietnam?

Yes. Well, I don’t know.

Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out. And then it was nice.

It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou.

There was always a million sparkles on the water.

Like that mountain lake.

It was so clear, Jenny, It looked like there were two skies; one on top of the other.

And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the earth began.

It was so beautiful.

I swear, every time I see this part of the movie, it always brings back my own memories. Most of them just stills in the back of my mind. I like to check on them from time to time.
