Summary
Vietnam veteran Peter Paul Mahoney joined the army in 1968 following the Tet Offensive. At 19 Mahoney graduated as a Second Lieutenant and soon went to Vietnam. Having had a religious upbringing Mahoney recalls mixed feelings about his identity as soldier and the military's rampant racism towards Vietnamese, such as referring to them as "gooks" and dehumanizing them. Mahoney also recounts his first impressions of Vietnam, and then how his idealistic view of the war crashed. He talks about training people in Vietnam to fight and living life after the war as a veteran.
