    Summary

    This is 100% based off the chapter ‘Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong’ from the Vietnam War book, The Things They Carried (that being said, some of the terminology such as weapons aren’t period-friendly, but we’re just gonna overlook that because I didn’t want to change the feel of the story too much). A fantastic book that I definitely suggest you read. Anyways, this is straight up copied from that chapter, just changed and edited slightly to fit with WW2 and the Band of Brothers. I seriously don’t take any credit for this fantastic piece of literature, all the credit goes towards Tim O’Brien. This doesn’t spoil the book at all, besides this single chapter (Also let's all pretend Easy Company spent a lot longer time in Berchtesgaden than they actually did but pretty much everything else goes as canon besides everyone is alive and uninjured because my little heart can’t take deaths).

    Summary

    Amelia Andrew Thompson carried a brochure from the college they hoped to apply to in the next year in the bottom of their backpack. It was creased now, with a small jam stain collecting crumbs on the front. They pulled it out occasionally, to look at or show to a friend or teacher. It was a simple community college, but they were proud of it. Thompson’s ambitions were simple, and this pamphlet covered many of them. It weighed one half ounce. Sometimes they would bring it out at lunch and unfold it and calculate the days until they graduated.

    A style imitation of the first chapter of The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien.
