My War For Me - 2006
Apparently the chapter "My War For Me" was written in 2006 and sent to a friend at

Maybe I am incorrect, but I thought Forrest got the idea to write a memoir from J.D. Salinger in 2010. Maybe he wrote this beforehand to get it off his chest, who knows.

"save by me "



http://www.english-test.net/forum/ftopic43276.html



"Hello everybody,



While reading Sir Author Conan Doyle's stories about Sherlock Holmes I often came across the word "save" in the meaning of "except". For example, "His eyes were sharp and piersing, save during those intervals of torpor to wich I have alluded..." And there are many such examples. It seems to me that Conan Doyle prefered using "save" to

"except". And how about the modern usage of these words in this meaning?



Yuri"

That's a sort of odd wording for a chapter heading:



My war for me

He said it only took 6 weeks to write the book and that it seemed to write itself. He obviously went through his files of previous essays and articles and worked them into his memoir. Nothing wrong with that. Many others have done the same thing. It also accounts for the disjointed feel of the book. If you compare the writing style of "Important Literature" with the eloquence of "My War for Me" it seems like they were written by different people.



The book was his way of publishing the treasure hunt and the the poem. But it also presents important themes that carry through into the poem and ultimately, the hiding place.

Maybe........



OR maybe he was thinking that his legacy would be tarnished by the "Cerberus Action" FBI raid on his home, and so he had to hastily compose TTOTC to get his treasure story out there...... maybe to make sure that any Google searches didn't tarnish his name???? I don't know...... The timing of the release is curious.......

</div>
or maybe the items in the chest is what they were looking for and that would explain the timing.

Nope, I think you missed something important along the way. Nothing Forrest owns was illegally acquired. The government ruined his reputation with baseless rumors and never did anything to restore his honor. Just like lying about what we were actually doing in Vietnam and Laos.
Shhh they aren't listening.

Now you are on to something, Deb. I have suspected for a while that the way he was treated by the government, both in Vietnam, and in his dealings with them as a civilian, is much of the motivation behind what he is doing now. It may also be the key to solving the poem.
