could you please help me with with the symbolisms inthe poem??

The young soldier was a gritty young man who was witnessing the battlefield horrors for the first time in his career. He was grievously hurt, and must have been in very great pain. However, despite being moments away from his death, in spirit and body, he was extremely resolute and valiant. He truly was proud of being a worthy son of his mother, and a chivalrous husband of his young wife. So, he defied his misfortune, and vowed to carry on fighting.
For him, his soldier’s life was not finished yet. So determined was he in his resolve that his fatal wound appeared to him as a small scar.

Posted now. Very sorry for the delay. [Go to the original post.]

America was involved in military conflicts in Asia during and after the WW2. Later,it fought a long and bloody war in Vietnam,and recently in Afghanistan. It is difficult to guess which ‘Asian soil’ the poet is alluding to. It could be Japan, Korea,the Philippines, Afghanistan or Vietnam.
