Abstract:     
This story by James Redwood conveys the recollections of a former Assessor of the Vietnamese Republic’s Ministry of War as they relate to his children and career during wartime. Through seemingly willful naïveté, obtuse rationalization, and ostensibly precise accountings of numbers, times, and settings by the primary character, Redwood presents the bureaucracy and social inconvenience of war, and the deteriorating effect it has on individuals and families caught in the midst of conflict.
