The Things They Carried

Is "Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong" a true story?

What literary techniques does O'Brien use from "How to tell a True War Story" to prove this?

Obrien's stories are fictional. They are loosely based on events and people he has known but many of his stories, especially this one, are highly stylized version of events that may or may not have happened.
