Barnes’ and Elias’ past in the AirCav?(3)

6 08 2008

Another hint to a possible common past of Elias and Barnes in the AirCav (found in the book while I was looking for something else — as usual):

QUOTE: Barnes grunted and wondered how any man could like crawling into dark, deadly holes. He wanted to kill gooks up where the wrold could warch, but Elias… he seemed to love this kind of shit. 

“You just make sure you don’t hit anything else down there. Elias. You ‘member how them f*****s used to trap them tunnels in the Ia Drang. The dinks ain’t been gone long and they might have left some troops behind”

Is is me, or the way Barnes says it suggests something they both went through together?
