What will my last words be?
Those who die in combat often call for their mothers. From one account in Vietnam: "I didn't really speak the language. I could understand a few phrases, though. One day during a firefight, for the first time in my life, I heard the cries of the Vietnamese wounded, they call out for their mothers, their wives, their girlfriends. There I was listening to the VC cry for the same things."
