Transcription:
"December 18th 1967 - Newsweek, five days after my birthday. This is a story called 'The Days Work.' And this is my unit, we went out and got ambushed, and this is me doing my job. We were attacked at this place called Buddha. That fight went on for two weeks. The first night I killed 14 people. There were 25 hundred of them, 250 of us. The next morning in front of my fighting position there were 18 of our men dead. So this is very, very, very distressing, and it creates huge amounts of distress in your system."

"Later in the magazine there's this... this is an article Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and a couple guys in my platoon, one of them got the magazine and came running over and said 'Burks, you gotta read this!' So I did. And I said, 'I'm going to do that....' Because it talks about stress release, about becoming a whole person."

"The next part of the story is about getting home. And that's a whole big deal, because things changed. All of a sudden you're in a different culture. They don't understand you. They have no idea. They don't understand that you're always still in the rubber plantation in the jungle. You're always on an adrenalin high. You're looking to protect your buddies, you're looking to protect yourself and you're looking to kill the enemy."
