The soldiers are starving PFC Tamura is very polite towards his fellow soldiers. While walking, unpacks his yams and sees the grenade. Quickly puts it back, starts to walk and momentarily forgets his food. Walking through the forest, it seems as though Tamura is going crazy. Tamura sees a house and the man welcomes him inside to eat. The man walks away to get him some yams and Tamura sees that he actually went off to get friends to kill Tamura. Tamura runs away. Tamura finally makes it to the hospital. The hospital tells Tamura to go back. If you can walk, your not a patient. The soldiers at the hospital don’t believe in fighting anymore.
