You know, I do support the military, but that doesn't mean that all companies or platoons have perfect people. Once you are assigned, you don't have much of a choice in who you fight and bunk with. And if he witnessed atrocities, he needs to say what, who when where and why. Blowing the whistle can help as much if not more so than counseling.
We would never have known about My Lai(sp)if people had been quiet.

Accomodations are not that great either. You can hang out with others who have your same standards, but not knowing and asking the question does not imply that he was a low life.

I also find it curious that Chuck mentions that people come back broken either from the duty or the training.

Chalk it up to Chuck choosing to be offended rather than objective.

Now, I understand that you might be of a different religion
than the rest of the madding crowd. What belief do you practice, if I may ask?
