After a while she made an attempt to become a Soldier

After a while she made an attempt to become a soldier by dropping the full American attitude for example stopped wearing makeup not wearing culottes I went on an ambush she told me there were nights where I just did not go back to the base From that Mary Anne described she seemed to have totally changed her mindset of Vietnam Later on she told me how she wore the same sweater whenever she would go on missions in the woods On being asked to comment on her personal life she didn't say much but showed an apology letter that was sent to her by Mark Fossie after he got to know that she had been back to Tennessee for a couple of weeks Dear Mary So glad you made it back alive I waited months for your news I have sent this letter to your parents when I heard that you came back I still haven't heard anything from about you I hope you are fine Listen about the camp I am really sorry about the way I acted towards you I should have trusted you but honestly with all the men around you and the way you acted around them I just lost my mind With all the men hung up by the terrors of the war I am pretty sure they all got to hook up with you I know it is because of your bubbly personality Little flirtation really didn't bother me because that is how much I loved you
