It wasn't fun being a "grunt" in No Man's 'Nam: if you weren't in mud up to your butt, you were guarding a pig farm; if a deserter from your company wasn't leading the ambush that wiped out your commander, you were filling a dead buddy's coffin with dope; if the Cong weren't out in a field playing Frisbee, one of your pals was being gored by a water buffalo. This was coming of age in Vietnam.
