For sure it can get confusing - watch all over this part of the movie @30:30 - it's the psyche  of the soldier, most of them were drafted...

Soldiers were there because they were told to be there!

Kill Anything That Moves:

The Real American War in Vietnam by Nick Turse


Not a single punch is pulled in this history of the Vietnam War, which is based on first-person interviews and classified documents. The thesis of Turse, and of his Vietnam war books, is that American acts of violence against Vietnamese civilians weren’t accidental and they weren’t rare—they were a systematic part of the war and soldiers were trained for and ordered to take part in hate-based slaughter.

Kill Anything That Moves finally brings us face-to-face with the truth of a war that haunts America to this day.
