Is being stuck in 'Nam a good memory?
>>
>>78800461
When soldiers get out of it sometimes all they care about anymore is that time spent in the field with their buddies, so maybe.
>>
>>78800461
Maybe for Rick
>>
I really like it when they take the time to have realistic looking gun models in animates shows.
>>
>>78800461
Its not about the memory being good its about a memory that paints the parasite in a good light.
>>
>>78800461
A good memory counts as anything with a happy resolution/spin. So the memory would likely result in one saving the other or sharing a pleasant moment despite being in the shit

why are they using m4's in Vietnam? Should be the m16a1

We're already approaching that. We left Vietnam in '75, so anyone who fought in it is already in their 60s. I've already started seeing Desert Storm take its place as character backstories.

This has already happened before. "Fought in WWII" used to be a really popular background.

They could be the Colt Commando.

if it was with your bro Frankenstein, then yes.

It's not the same but I guess it will be interesting. I love the jungle aesthetic of Nam more.
>>

>>78804716
Nope, looks like an m4. That handguard looks pretty modern.
>>
>>78806422
Yeah, but lets give them the benefit of doubt and say it's a CAR-15.

During down time when you're just chilling with your platoon it can be.

While war is traumatic and can be filled with horror, the friendship between fellow soldiers or others in the theater are the strongest friendships that can be made.

Compare that today's social media where people say they are your friend on face book and trade Instagram, but would any of these people fight to protect you or your family?

Fortunate Son is a song about draft dodging. I don't get why it's the anthem of the Vietnam War.
>>
>>78818204
Because vietnam was a quagmire and the start of a massive anti-war movement and draft dodging was a thing that actually happened?
>>
>>78818204
Because it's pissed at rich boys who "legitimately" avoided the draft.
>>
>>78800461
If it means getting the fuck away from decadent and hypocritical 60s American society, it might as well be paradise.

Same as being stuck in an elevator.

The memory could be a shit situation as long as the parasite is depicted as a positive factor in it.

If you're with the people you love, of course.

>Desert Storm
How can such a Badass name go to a conflict in which nothing happened?
>>
>>78800605
Drawing and especially animating guns is a nightmare. So many incredibly precise lines. If everything isn't exact and detailed, it's not a gun.
>>
>>78823324
Wow you won't get to kill people for corporations. You poor thing.

>>78804173

Desert Storm won't have the same impact as nam though, nam was conscription.

>Fortunate Son is a song about draft dodging.
It's more about the guys who couldn't get out of the draft juxtaposed next to the ones that could.

"I ain't no senator's son" - meaning the senator's son avoided the whole thing through political connections while the singer, a normal guy, got left in the shit.

The bigger question is why do americans remember vietnam so fondly even though they lost.
>>
>>78823909
That's why they should use 3D models. Like OP's image.
>>
>>78824046
Where the fuck do you get that idea? You think being spit in the face for serving your country and getting blamed for "losing the war" are fond memories?
>>
>>78824138

But the gov and the homefront is to blame for losing.

You know who else thought that?

of course you do
>>
>>78824046
>americans remember vietnam so fondly

Uh. We don't remember it fondly. We kind of consider it to be an atrocity and monumental clusterfuck. Maybe some old retarded people think it was good for some reason, maybe rich people made money off it somehow, but it pretty much single-handedly poisoned the concept of mandatory military service for the whole country forever.
>>
>>78824425
Are you implying it was military failure? Because if so you could not be more wrong.
