Welcome to the Jungle


Saigon...shit; I'm still only in Saigon...Every time I think I'm gonna wake up back in the jungle.

When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle. I'm here a week now...waiting for a mission...getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Charlie squats in the bush, he gets stronger.

Each time I looked around the walls moved in a little tighter.
