Quiz Outcomes

  • 1.
    You are a Soldier
    You are a solider directly in the line of combat, closest to the enemy and most likely to die for your country, but this likely doesn't faze you. Vietnam soldiers handled not only physical challenges like rough terrain and unforgiving climate, but mental challenges like disillusionment, often seeing their servicemen be killed or disfigured by booby traps and hidden mines. 58,220 soldiers were killed in total, and despite the impossibility to tell if you would be among the dead, you definitely share their determination, loyalty to a cause, and the willingness to sacrifice for something dearly loved.
  • 2.
    You are a Nurse
    You are a Nurse, a job so vitally important in all military camps and bases, responsible for caring for injured soldiers, helping them back to good health and back to the field. While not on the front line, you are not oblivious to the horror of war, and not all could be saved. Vietnam nurses easily worked twelve hour shifts, six days a week, which could just as easily jump to a twenty-four to thirty-six hour shift if a huge battle had occurred. Anger, depression, and guilt were to be felt every single day in the lives of the 11,000 Vietnam nurses. Yet these ladies held strong, and you share many of their qualities; selflessness, strong-willed, and a constant desire to help people.
  • 3.
    You are a Communications Operator
    You are a Communications Officer, someone working to maintain the link between the front line and established military bases through the use of radios. These people aren't meant for the front lines, preferring to stay behind and help in a different way. Good communication skills, empathy, and emotional self control are a must in order to properly filter the stream of information that comes through the line, which is often horror-filled news of whats happening on the front line. Needless to stay, it takes someone that can keep their nerve.
  • 4.
    You are an Intelligence Officer
    You are an Intelligence Officer, someone tasked with analyzing information and the results of operations to determine the best course of action against hostile individuals or parties. Intelligence Officers always observe; they know how to argue, how to deal with high stress, and how to handle very sensitive information. Ever find yourself content in watching a scene unfold, or knowing a secret no one else can fathom? Intelligence Officers do, though sometimes at great risk, as those stationed in Vietnam risked their lives everyday trying to gather information that quite possibly had the power to turn the tides of the war.
  • 5.
    You are a Civilian
    You are a Civilian, someone caught up within the crossfire of a fight you want no part in. You try to redirect yourself and your family out of harm's way as much as possible, but as the war progressed it became increasingly impossible. Civilians faced inhuman brutality from soldiers, some things too unspeakable to mention, and they were often dehumanized. The peak of brutality came with the "Kill Anything That Moves" command in free fire zones. At the end of the very long war, two million civilians perished, and the bad taste has never left the mouths of the families who were put through hell and lost loved ones along the way.
