Vietnam Camaraderie

Vietnam Camaraderie — When I was stationed at a base near Hue, Vietnam, I found that the American Army soldiers didn’t always get along with the South Vietnamese military. My job was as an interpreter since I speak Vietnamese, so I tried my best to get along with both the American and Vietnamese soldiers by talking with them about not only the differences but the similarities between us. I found that the best way and time to do this was when we were as far as possible from the frontline sitting in a makeshift bar over some cold beers. I think that I helped as much as a could in building a bridge with beer in getting our troops to work together as comrades.
