Please open your Chrome book and access the journal prompt for Field Trip in Google Classroom. Please answer each question thoughtfully.
Choose one quote and explain how it fits with the general feelings towards the Vietnam War and the aftermath.

1. "Like coming over here. Some dumb thing happens a long time ago and you can't ever forget it."
"And that's bad?"
"No," she said. "That's weird."

2. This little field, I thought, had swallowed so much. My best friend. My pride. My belief in myself as a man of some small dignity and courage. Still, it was hard to find any real emotion. It simply wasn't there. After that long night in the rain, I'd seemed to grow cold inside, all the illusions gone, all the old ambitions and hopes for myself sucked away into the mud. Over the ears, that coldness had never completely disappeared."

3. "Twenty years. A lot like yesterday, a lot like never. In a way, maybe, I'd gone under with Kiowa, and now after two decades I'd mostly worked my way out."
