O'Brien's descriptive summary of his time as a pig declotter helps the reader to understand the man. From the description of his experiences in this job, we can infer that his desire to stay out of Vietnam doesn't come from a fear of blood and gore. He isn't afraid..... he simply doesn't believe in the war.
