It may be a stretch, but they all share a common thread. They feature profound cynicism about the military, and about the politics behind them.

A kid – clean cut in khaki’s and a pressed white shirt – possibly a cholo-kid -all of 13 years old, leapt up and ran to the second floor landing of the Transit Cenetr to watch the fireworks.
