Songs That Won the War

75 min

with me being in the war.

Well, I went... I went

nuts for a little while.

Them doctors called it

post-traumatic stress.

You remember how I used to...

Remember, I used to do things

before, they didn't make no sense?

Well, it's 'cause there's

a lot of pain in my head.

And I'm gonna tell you

something else, too.

I landed three jobs

after the war.

And I lost every one of them

'cause of them dreams.

It wasn't 'cause

I couldn't do the work, son.

They're finding out a lot

of men who go off to war,

they just don't

come back the same.

A lot of them.

But not... Not me.

I'm definitely

getting better.

Come on, let's finish

our coffee and doughnuts.

You dreamt one of them dreams

this morning, huh?

What was it about?

I don't... I don't think I ever told

you I had a friend in the Marines.

Dodge. Mama told me his name.

She didn't mean

to do nothing wrong.

It's okay.

We were good friends,

Dodge and me.

We'd gone through

boot camp together.

There was this one night our

platoon was sweeping the village

in the hills

just west of Khe Sanh.

The village

had been taken by the NVA

and retaken by us

so many damn times

that the poor people there had to dig

their own trenches just to stay alive.


What's wrong with you?

Been with you in the bush

too long.

I notice as long as I been in

the bush, you been behind my butt.

We were good friends,

Dodge and me.

He was a big son of a bitch.

Excuse me, but he was.

He was the biggest man I... Biggest

man I could ever call my friend.

Right flank, talk to me!

We did everything together.

Left flank, talk to me!

Move down.


So long to get

where I'm going

Get on the radio!

We need artillery!

I've been waiting so long

Come on!

Get down, down, down!


Get down!

Fox Trot Five!
