Out of all the chapters in The Things They Carried, my favorite chapter would have to be Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong. I love this chapter. It was my favorite chapter because it shows all the changes that Mary Ann Bell goes through while she is visiting Mark Fossie. She starts out as a cheerleader from Cleveland Heights Senior High and transforms into a woman who joins the Greenies and wears a necklace made of tongues. In one part of the story she even says. " Sometimes I want to eat this place. The whole country, the dirt, the death, I just want to swallow it and have it there inside me." She pretty much gets obsessed with everything going on in Vietnam. At the end of the chapter, she even leaves Mark and runs off. This chapter shows how there is a place for everyone in the war. This chapter also shows a lot of scenery details and uses a lot of figurative language.
