    Mr. Grimm and his friend Benny were drafted into the Vietnam War when they were only 18 years old. Straight out of high school. Neither one was prepared for the terror of the Vietnam jungles. Their platoon was outnumbered, outclassed, and unprepared. They fought the enemy bravely, but quickly fell. The horror of each battle tortured the survivors. The screams from nightmares could be heard in the trenches each night. Mr. Grimm and Benny saw their comrades fall ten at a time...they knew that their time would come too. During a fight, Benny was injured. While trying to protect his ailing friend, Mr. Grimm and Benny were captured. When they awoke, found themselves in a pit. A Vietnamese adviser said that the only chance of survival was to eat and he dropped a machete. Mr. Grimm knew what he wanted them to do. The friends weren't going to eat each other, though. As the days passed, so did Benny's life. Mr. Grimm had no choice but to eat his deceased friend in order to survive.

    In an effort to memorialize his friend, Grimm used Benny's skull as a type of helmet. When he was rescued from the P.O.W. camp some time later, Grimm killed 4 of the G.I.s who attempted to remove the skull. He was finally subdued and shipped to Blackfield Asylum.
