Do you think returning combat vets from WW2, Korea and Vietnam fell into the same ?
Are there any clear "differences" IYO ?

Not that I have anything personal against Vets, just realistically it is a path that will appeal to those with the bully type personality by the nature of the job.
I am not a bully.
Getting a little tired of your generalizations.

1/8 isn't anything to scoff at.
and that's from 2012. How many vets do you think keep their illness to themselves after coming back?
Sorry, but I believe MOST of who come back from war, who have seen action, have scarred psyches. Otherwise, you'd have to be a psychopath.
It is a statement not an accusation.
The Military does in fact appeal to the type of personality that gets off on the possibility of getting into a fight and pushing people around.
Many even do it because it increases their ability to get into law enforcement jobs where they get to spend a lifetime pushing people around.
Am I judging you personally? No I am not, I could care less about your reasons. I am just stating that there is a tendency.
