Objective: In chapter one Vonnegut plays a practical joke by appearing at an ROTC inspection wearing every sort of medal he can find (swimming, scouting, Sunday school attendance, etc.). When the war ends and Vonnegut is authorized to wear combat ribbons, he finds them to be no more meaningful than these borrowed trinkets. This lesson will discuss the significance of tangible rewards.
