This should be an interesting anthology. These controversial wars have to be a source for a broad spectrum of sentiments among those who participated in them.  Where the miliary is concerned, it's like a microcosim of the general population.  There are the good, the bad, and the ugly;  Not all its members are heroes or patriots as evidenced by the sexually harassed female enlistees, not to mention the "fraggin" within the ranks where comrades kill each other.The high rate of suicides, and post traumatic stress that have triggered violent incidents are also tragic reminders of the toll these wars have taken. Nevertheless,  the recent reports that many among the rank and file of the standing Army were disgusted with Obama for being "chicken" about Syria, are significant. They wanted him to be more aggressive. Apparently peace is not a priority among men trained to kill.

 

Those, however, who are awarded medals for their bravery are true warriors, and are  examples of a "few good men" being "all they can be".
