When our boys in the US military were shipped out to Vietnam they faced an entirely new collection of problems than they were trained for. This war was made up of jungle warfare, and while that presented it’s own unique set of issues, there was also the concern of new and terrifying animals that we definitely don’t have in the states.

Imagine getting your boots the ground only to find an entirely new landscape filled with giant snakes that could swallow you whole. It takes guts to pick up a monstrous carnivore like this, so these soldiers definitely have guts.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
