Warm Take: Performance of Care. July 25, 2021

HBO’s Generation Kill was about a bunch of US Marines in Iraq during the war. I don't remember much about it, including why I watched; maybe via a recommendation from a Marine in my life?

HBO’s Generation Kill was about a bunch of US Marines in Iraq during the war.  I don't remember much about it, including why I watched; maybe via a recommendation from a Marine in my life?  

What stayed with me:  a scene where a lieutenant helps a private tend to his badly blistered feet.  As I recall it, the captain had coached the lieutenant:  if the enlisted guy can't walk, he can’t do his job; you have to help him.
