  1. 1. Viet Cong guerillas stands for the Vietnamese Communists. Marksman is a person who is skilled in precision, or a sharpshooter shooting,[1] using projectile weapons, such as with a rifle but most commonly with a sniper rifle, to shoot at long range targets. Quadriplegic is paralysis caused by illness or injury to a human that results in the partial or total loss of use of all their limbs and torso;

    2. This reading is about a solider that is fighting in a war. He does not like it all he wants is to go home. He feels unsafe he always has to have his eyes open. HE more so hates the way being in war is making him feel.

    3.It shows us the point of view of the soldiers and not just the commander its facts. I like the song because it shows how much heart one has to have for his/her country to be able to be over there fighting everyday even though they are scared and miss home.

    2. What was is this reading about?  How do you think the soldiers in our reading feel?
    The reading was about men in the military I'm assuming they didn't really like it because they didn't sign up to kill children and women. But I also think they liked it because they mentioned something about women an booze so i'm also assuming they liked that part..


    3.  What kinds of techniques does this reading use to describe the war to us?  Do you like this song, yes or no?  Why?
    They used rhyming , I liked it because it rhymed an wasnt just a boring reading, it kinda had a little ring to it.

  5. 1.Valor- Boldness in danger, Heroic courage
    Harbinger- An omen or sign, A person that knowingly approaches another
    2. This reading was about soldiers in the Vietnamese war. I think the soldiers in the poem wanted to go home and see their families. I think the soldiers wanted peace of mind and to stop being scared and killing innocent people.
    3. This poem used a rhyming technique. Like the song but I don't. This song is depressing, it makes me sad for the soldiers. But I like the song because it kind of gives a closer look at how the soldiers feel.
