In the book Fallen Angels, the loss of innocence is demonstrated by the young soldiers being drafted in a horrific situation where they experience death and were not able to experience many activities a typical young adult their age would be able to experience away from war.

this quote introduces the theme loss of innocence by outting the soldiers youth and inexperince into context, the soldiers put their lives on line for a vaguely outlined cause.
"Having people care about you was probably the only thing that made any of it right. Having them not care made your whole life wrong"(myers pg 200).
reference from the
Real Life connection
The cambodian genocide
the cambdioan genocide took place in southeast asia. Over 25% of the countrys population was wiped out. by the Khmer Rouge. Over half of the victims were young women and children.
Real life connection
International law defines a “child” as someone under eighteen years of age. Current international standards, establish fifteen years as the minimum age of military recruitment, although most signatories to the convention support an optional protocol that sets eighteen years as the minimum recruitment age. Despite these standards, it is estimated that there are approximately three hundred thousand child soldiers involved in conflicts in over thirty countries worldwide (WESSELLS ¶4).
Reference from the novel
"The noise was terrible. Every time a mortar went off, I jumped. I couldn’t help myself. The noise went into you. It touched part of you that were small and frightened and wanting your mommy"(myers pg 244).
Real life connection
the soldiers are not only lossing thier innocence but are also lossing the resepect of others, for example some people see them as murders, baby killers and rapists.
PErry craved the experience he was deprived from since he was put into war, many of the soldiers suffered from ptsd which made them feel like they were unsafe every where they went .
"It wasn’t real. None of it was real. The only things that was real was me and Peewee, sitting in this spider’s grave, waiting for death"(myers pg 289)
reference from the novel
This quote explains the lose of innocence by showing that the soldiers feel like they are trapped and are just awaiting death.
" War Trauma"
Poem :
" War drags men to the very edge,where they must shut completely down, all emotion, all caring, all feeling, just to survive the experience. Imprevious to pain,suffering, and death, they blankly assimilate wars horror..."
This Poem relates to the theme because it talks about how bad the war was. There was just so many horrific scenes through out the war. The way the war went every soldier had some kind of traumatic experience. It was hard on the soldiers to experience this trauma everyday. The way that Bennett describes it shows how bad it was to be in the war.
"goodNIGHT SAIGon"
The first two lines generalizes the loss of innocence the soldiers underwent while fighting in the war. They were well trained and honorable men that were willing to risk their lives for thier country.
"We met as soulmates on paris island
we left as inmates from an asylum
and we were sharp, as sharp as knives
and we were so gung ho to lay down our lives..."
In April 1992, the government of the Yugoslav republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina declared its independence from Yugoslavia. Over the next several years, Bosnian Serb forces, targeted both Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) and Croatian civilians for atrocious crimes resulting in the deaths of some 100,000 people (80 percent Bosniak) by 1995. It was the worst act of genocide since the Nazi regime’s destruction of some 6 million European Jews during World War II. (Cigar ¶ 6)

Rwandan Genocide
From April to July 1994, members of the Hutu ethnic majority in the east-central African nation of Rwanda murdered as many as 800,000 people, mostly of the Tutsi minority. Begun by extreme Hutu nationalists in the capital of Kigali, the genocide spread throughout the country with staggering speed and brutality, as ordinary citizens were incited by local officials and the Hutu Power government to take up arms against their neighbors (Brunner para 6).
