Peter Robert Young - Interview with Peter Robert Young: clip: Leaving Vietnam; talked into bringing home a captured 9mm Chinese pistol for a buddy who could carry only one; getting stares in the airport because he was wearing his uniform; seeing the effect of service on his comrades; advising to capture impressions of veterans when they are fresh; reacting to loud noises by hitting the ground; senses you never forget; anger he feels toward those who could have but didn't serve; Army gave him two traits: the ability to concentrate in chaotic situations (uses his reaction to the events on 9/11 as an example) and a sense of discipline to accomplish many task daily, as his father-in-law did.
