DOWNLOAD ↠ Dispatches Written on the front lines in Vietnam Dispatches became an immediate classic of war reportage when it was published in 1977From its terrifying opening pages to its final elouent words Dispatches makes us see in u. Flip religion it was so far out you couldn t blame anybody for believing anythingGuys stuck the ace of spades in their helmet bands they picked relics off of an enemy they d killed a little transfer of power they carried around five pound Bibles from home crosses St Christophers mezuzahs locks of hair girlfriends underwear snaps of their families their wives their dogs their cows their cars pictures of John Kennedy Lyndon Johnson Martin Luther King Huey Newton the Pope Che Guevara the Beatles Jimi Hendrix wiggier than cargo cultists One man was carrying an oatmeal cookie through his tour wrapped up in foil and plastic and three pair of socks He took a lot of shit about it When you go to sleep we re gonna eat your fucking cookie but his wife had baked it and mailed it to him he wasn t kidding Michael Herr was a war correspondent for Esuire Magazine from 1967 1969 I pulled up a list of journalists that were killed during the Vietnam Conflict The list has almost 70 names including Australians Japanese South Vietnamese French and Americans The list also shows how they died and they died the same way that combat soldiers died They were captured and executed They were blown apart by Bouncing Bettys clays and mortar fire They were shot by friendly fire They crashed in helicopters and planes Two of Herr s best friends Sean Flynn and Dana Stone were captured while riding their motorcycles down Highway One by the Khmer Rouge They were believed to have been executed a few months later but their bodies were never found If the name Flynn conjures up images of Captain Blood there is a good reason for that He was the son of Errol Flynn Jeffrey Keeten before he is to shipped out foroh waitdamn I always get us mixed up This is Sean Flynn actor and soon to be war correspondent The soldiers could not take their eyes of off him either out of repressed homosexual tendencies or because he looks so familiar Sean Flynn and Dana StoneThe point I m trying to make is that war correspondents were at as much risk as the combat soldiers they were there to write about The soldiers were in awe of them because it was beyond comprehension to a drafted marine to think that anyone would want to be in this hell by choice Two Marines that I hadn t even met before nightfall had gone out on the scrounge and come back with a new stretcher for me to sleep on They were always doing things like that for you the way Mayhew had tried to give me his mattress the way grunts in Hue one day had tried to give me their helmets and flak jackets because I had turned up without my own If you tore your fatigues on the wire or trying to crawl for cover you d have new or at least fresh ones within minutes and never know where they came from They always took care of you General William Westland devised a plan to draw enemy combatants to the Americans He built a base at Khe Sanh that was close enough to Laos that patrols could harass the enemy there and it was located far enough north that the NVA would be forced to engage The Battle lasted five months and the whole time the Marines were under a constant barrage of enemy fire This base made Herr think about the jar in a Wallace Steven s poem Anecdote of a Jar I placed a jar in TennesseeAnd round it was upon a hillIt made the slovenly wildernessSurround that hillThe wilderness rose up to itAnd sprawled around no longer wildThe jar was round upon the groundAnd tall and of a port in airIt took dominion everywhereThe jar was gray and bareIt did not give of bird or bushLike nothing else in Tennessee Wallace StevensThe battle was considered a victory by both sides With the American commanders claiming a x10 ratio for kills they could estimate 10000 to 16000 KIA off of 1602 bodies actually found The Americans lost 2016 killed and 8079 wounded after the battle the American blew up the base and moved out The NVA swarmed in to take over the area You might ask yourself what was accomplished We used what was at hand dropping the greatest volume of explosives in the history of warfare over the terrain within the thirty mile sector which fanned out from Khe Sanh Employing saturation bombing techniues we delivered than 110000 tons of bombs to those hills during the eleven week containment of Khe Sanh the smaller foothills were often uite literally turned inside out the streeper of them were made faceless and drawless and the bigger hills were left with scars and craters of such proportions that an observer from some remote culture might see in them the obsessiveness and ritual regularity of religious symbols the blackness at the deep center pouring out rays of bright overturned earth all the way to the circumference forms like Aztec sun figures suggesting that their makers had been men who held Nature in an awesome reverence There s something happening hereWhat it is ain t exactly clearThere s a man with a gun over thereTellin me I ve got to bewareI think it s time we stopped childrenWhat s that soundEverybody look what s goin downThe men who came back from Vietnam have minds filled with dark places shards of pain and trapped screams Night sweats twisted sheets bruises from wrestling demons and fear parched throats haunt their nights long after they return home I ve been having this dream the major said I ve had it two times now I m in a big examination room
