198 / 365 – That’s How It Works

FRED VANEK

They weren’t really close enough that you could see who they were. You could tell by the uniforms. Olive or yellowish brown, you saw that and then you shot at them. You shot at the uniform. They saw green, they shot at us. I didn’t even want to wear that uniform, I hated that uniform. I wonder if they would have shot at me if I was wearing a Czech uniform. Would they have hated someone in pale gray instead of green? I don’t think it would have mattered. Somebody has a gun, they are dressed different, you shoot at them. And they shoot at you. That’s how it works.
