That is a very touchy and tricky subject to discuss and often once you get answers, you wish you did not ask in the first place. My departed Uncle
co-piloted a Liberator and flew 26 missions over Germany in which he was responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, or so he felt. He went from
being a happy go lucky guy, or so my mother told me, to a quiet, somber man that spoke infrequently and spent much of his time alone with his
A young man that I know though a neighbor did much killing and was so good at it that after he left the service was signed on by an agency where he
continues what he did so well. He says very little and we are fortunate at that.
Then there was a buddy of mine that that served in a UDT team during the last few years in Vietnam and a year as a mercenary in Africa. He not only
killed plenty and loved to do it and talk about it, but torturing lost souls was his favorite pastime. At 61 he still satiates his need to inflict
pain on humans in fights he initiates for sport. A seriously lost soul and after knowing him well, it would have been far better to have never met
him at all. So be careful for what you wish for.
Me, I just played at soldering and it was a lot of fun because we marched and trained and drilled and schooled and never had the unfortunate choice of
having to kill or be killed. My heart goes out to any and all of those that had to choose, and I would say to all of them is Be Thou At Peace, your
grateful nation salutes you all.
