Summary
America has been at war for over a decade now, with millions of soldiers having seen death and dying up close in Afghanistan and Iraq. But most Americans, watching comfortably on their TVs and computers, witness mostly to statistics, stump speeches, and "expert" rhetoric, don't get what's really going on there. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers talks to Karl Marlantes - a highly decorated Vietnam veteran, Rhodes scholar, author, and PTSD survivor - about what we on the insulated outside need to understand about the minds and hearts of our modern warriors. Marlantes shares with Moyers intimate stories about how his battlefield experiences both shaped and nearly destroyed him, even after returning to civilian life. "You take a young man and put him in the role of God, where he is asked to take a life..." Marlantes tells Moyers, "...that's something no 19-year-old is able to handle
