Americans are raised in a culture whose laws reflect the principles of Christianity. One of the major offenses in American society, as in the religion most Americans follow, is that of murder or "thou shalt not kill".

 


Millions of veterans deal with this moral dilemma - but no one talks about it. How do you rationalize killing innocent people if you have been taught all your life that killing is wrong? How can a man serve his entire life in the military - learning to kill and then preach "the good word"? What about the psychological damage this contradiction of the spirit does to so many men and woman? And what happens when you have a mentally disturbed trained killer in your home who can't cope with the atrocities of war?

Yea..we know. But we wouldn't be WYMS if we didn't.
