I bet the man who can’t stand KIA because of his military duty has not changed his views
I was drafted in 1964, I did not even go over, never saw combat, but when I came home I could not even kill an ant. Before, I loved hunting and fishing, and used to kill the small farm animals when my mother requested it. Not after my two years.
I do not understand why, either. If I had seen combat, it would be different.
I have talked to other vets who had the same experience. Strange!
I got out of service 50 years today, I just noticed. I can now kill bugs, but still can’t slaughter chickens nor other animals.
Though I am not sure since it has never happened nor do I expect it to ever happen, I do suspect I can kill a human, if that is any clue to what happened.
